Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES) is a rigorous six-week residential academic enrichment program for promising high school seniors – many of whom come from underrepresented or underserved communities – who have a strong academic record and are interested in studying and exploring careers in science and engineering.
This national program stresses the value and reward of pursuing advanced technical degrees and careers while developing the skills necessary to achieve success in science and engineering. In 2015, MITES served 68 students hailing from 22 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Mexico, and Malawi.
In 2016, the MITES program will be held from June 11 to July 21. Upon acceptance, students should email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have concerns about program dates conflicting with school obligations.
All educational, food and boarding costs are generously covered by our funders. Students only pay for transportation to and from MIT.
Students take one calculus course, one life sciences course, one physics course a humanities course and an elective course. Please see below for a description of the classes offered in Summer 2015.
