Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence

The Minority Engineering Program at Purdue University was initiated in 1974 as one of several initiatives to improve diversity and inclusion in the College of Engineering. Purdue's Minority Engineering Program is committed to engineering research and knowledge sharing with the international community through peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations.

Although we strive to attract students from historically underrepresented groups, namely African American, Hispanic American and Native American, our programs are open to all. MEP has been the key to Purdue's successful graduation of more than 3,000 engineering underrepresented minority students to date. It is because of this success that other colleges and universities across the country have adopted Purdue's Minority Engineering Program model.
