Michigan Introduction to Technology & Engineering (MITE)


Current 9th and 10th graders

The 13-day MITE program excites, engages, educates, and empowers students with an integrated curriculum centering on an engineering-based challenge. The program takes place in June and forty students are accepted to the program. The students attend four key academic classes: Engineering Concepts, Technical Communications, Engineering Math, and Professional Development. These classes support the engineering design challenge. Students live in a dorm while attending the program.

Students also participate in workshops on entrepreneurship, cultural engagement, and college preparation and selection. Guided tours of the College of Engineering and other University facilities, along with outdoor recreation activities, enhance the MITE experience. One session of MITE will be offered in 2016. Students who attended MITE in the summer of 2015 should not apply, but are encouraged to attend the Summer College Engineering 

Students who attended MITE in the summer of 2015 as rising 10th graders (current 10th graders now) should not apply, but are encouraged to apply to attend the Summer College Engineering 
Exposure Program (SCEEP) at the conclusion of your 11th grade year. There will be no MITE 2 this summer.
