What’s SUMMET?
The Summer Multicultural Engineering Training (SUMMET) is an engineering, science and technology program designed for rising juniors and seniors who are from underrepresented populations, including ethnic/racial minority, women and prospective first-generation college students. Students from Colorado and Oklahoma are eligible to apply to the program.

SUMMET combines course work, hands-on projects, industry tours, team building activities and social events. SUMMET provides exposure to the lifestyle, opportunities and challenges of college and is designed to help build skills and experiences for a smooth transition from high school to college. SUMMET is a two-week residential program, allowing participants to live on campus for the duration for the program, experience life as a college student, and participate in STEM related curriculum instruction.

The program is available at no cost to participants, with the exception of a $50 confirmation fee for students accepted into the program. Transportation to and from the program is not included in the cost and is currently the responsibility of participants.
