Welcome to the MESA Engineering Program (MEP) Page

The mission of the MESA Engineering Program at San Jose State University is to increase the number of high caliber, industry-ready graduates from educationally and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds completing degrees in Engineering or Computer Science at San José State University.

MEP welcomes all eligible student applicants however, and to the extent permitted by law, we strongly encourage participation of students stemming from groups with historically low participation rates in post-secondary education.
