Summer Residential Programs

The Diversity Programs Office understands that to support our students in their efforts to succeed academically, we must invest in our young people not only while they are at MSU, but before they get here!  We have expanded our Summer Residential Programs to meet the needs of future and current Spartan Engineers!

Engineering and Science Summer Academy (ESSA)

Done in collaboration with the Michigan Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (MI-LSAMP), ESSA is a six-week, residential, academic intensive program designed to acclimate incoming freshmen with both the academic and environmental aspects to post secondary education.  Participants will attend daily classes in Math, English/Writing, Chemistry and an Engineering Seminar course to expose students to post graduation and professional opportunities.  Participants will also attend presentations from representatives in all engineering disciplines within the College of Engineering.  2012 ESSA Application

Summer Undergraduate Research Academy (SURA)

The MI-LSAMP SURA is designed to provide a comprehensive research training and enrichment experience.  SURA consists of three components or phases that begins with an eight week summer portion and ends at the completion of the successive fall semester.

Teen Engineering Experience at Michigan State (TEEMS)

The TEEMS is a residential program that will give students hands on exposure to the field of engineering and life on the campus of Michigan State University.  Students will spend one week on campus exploring engineering concepts and participating in hands on projects that enhance the teamwork and communications skills needed to be successful in engineering. Additionally, participants will tour scientific and engineering laboratories on MSU’s campus.
