TAMIU Science and Engineering Program
for High School Juniors, Seniors Starts June 1

Current high school juniors and seniors interested in science and engineering should apply for the Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program (MSEIP) at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU).

The program starts Monday, June 1. MSEIP is funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Education.

It assists predominantly minority institutions, like TAMIU, in effecting long-range improvement in science and engineering education programs and increasing the flow of under-represented ethnic minorities, particularly minority women, into science and engineering careers.

This year’s MSEIP summer program will run for eight weeks, on the University campus, June 1-July 23, Mondays through Thursdays, 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Participants receive math and science enrichment instruction and college preparation guidance as well as develop critical and analytical skills. For more information, call 326.2701 or e-mail graciela.briseno@tamiu.edu
