- Visits to High Schools and College Fairs: The Minority Engineering Program (MEP) staff actively recruit students through visits to high schools in Massachusetts and college fairs nationwide.
- Fall Overnight: This two-day program provides crucial information such as admission procedures, financial aid, and freshman engineering curriculum to prospective applicants. A tour of the College and visits to classes are included.
- Spring Overnight: During this program, high school students to whom an offer of admissions has been extended are invited to spend an evening in the University hosted by MEP students. This event is geared to coincide with the College of Engineering's Spring Open House. The prospective students hear from various University departments such as Financial Aid, Mather Career Center and engineering Undergraduate Affairs. Later, students are given an opportunity to meet and mingle with one another.
- Teacher/Counselor Workshop: This new program is a two-day event hosting school guidance counselors and/or math and science teachers from schools in Massachusetts and surrounding states. The program provides a means for the teachers and counselors to exchange information and ideas and to acquaint them with engineering-related materials they can use in their schools. Another objective is to introduce MEP as a liaison in their student counseling effort regarding college planning.
