The Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) is an academic support program designed to recruit, retain and graduate a diverse population of students, especially groups which continue to remain the most underrepresented in engineering. This includes but is not limited to aspiring College of Engineering students who are first in their family to earn a baccalaureate degree, or from family backgrounds of limited financial resources and less educational opportunities. MEP leverages a strong support network to build an academic community and provide the necessary bridges for students’ academic and professional success.
Having advisors who solely focuses on Engineering definitely made navigating the Cal Poly catalog much easier. As a transfer student, having an advisor who could tell me what did and did not transfer, what to take next, and what to take in conjunction with my transfer units, allowed me to focus more on my current classes.
