At the MAS, we are passionate about making science tangible and exciting to everyone! We search for and facilitate innovative partnerships between science industries, research institutions, science teachers, college students, and the general public; creating dynamic activities and communities that mutually satisfy the common goals of all our partners. We combine our powerful resources of pedagogy and STEM field experts to create dynamic educational campaigns. These campaigns put a “face” to the science that affects everyday lives, and serves up science to the public — making them want to come back for more!
What is the ultimate goal? By satisfying our objectives to improve STEM education and STEM workforce development, we satisfy our over-arching goal, which is to increase civic science literacy. When Massachusetts residents are empowered with scientific knowledge, their decision-making is well informed, their voices are strong, and their communities are recognized; they have a direct hand in how science affects their daily lives.
The primary mission of the department is the education of its students. Its three undergraduate programs traditionally have attracted over 30% of all MIT undergraduates, and its doctoral programs are highly ranked and selective. A leader in cooperative education, the department has operated the highly successful VI-A Internship Program since 1917. The MIT Women's Technology Program (WTP) is a four-week summer academic and residential experience where female high school students explore engineering through hands-on classes, labs, and team-based projects in the summer after 11th grade. Our goal: to spark high school girls' interest in future study of engineering and computer science.
MentorNet is the premiere and most experienced web-based e-mentoring program in the world. Every year They match thousands of students, postdocs, and early career researchers in engineering and science on hundreds of campuses to mentors in the professions for one-on-one guided relationships. Originally founded by Dr. Carol Muller in 1997 to help women engineers, their mission to diversify the global talent workforce has expanded to more than 70 science, engineering and technical fields and to serve all eligible students, with a focus on those who are underrepresented in their chosen fields. Today, they also provide the only social network where engineering and science students from across the U.S. and globally can create their profiles as future professionals, grow a future professional network of peers, mentors and future colleagues, share their experiences, and show their seriousness about their career aspirations.

Today, more than 174,000 students attend Miami Dade College, a state-supported college with eight campuses and numerous outreach centers. They are the largest institution of higher education in the United States and one of the most highly regarded colleges in the nation. Each of their campuses has its own distinct identity and specialties. But, they also offer a broad base of general education courses, allowing you to take first-year classes at any of our campuses (except the Medical Campus). That means you get to decide what campus you want to attend. Take all of your first-year classes at one campus, or follow the path of some of our working students and take morning classes near your home and evening and weekend classes near your place of work. As you begin to take more advanced courses, you may need to focus your studies at a specific campus where your program is offered.

For more than 125 years, Michigan Tech faculty have explored the boundaries of knowledge while teaching students to become citizens who contribute to the sustainability of our world. In 1885, the University was founded as the Michigan Mining School, specializing in training for mining engineers. During the period of 1887 to 1898, student and faculty numbers increased, and the School was moved to its present location. By the time the institution became officially known as Michigan Technological University in 1964, several programs had been added to the curriculum: chemical, electrical, civil, mechanical, and geological engineering. Under the leadership of J. Robert Van Pelt, from 1956 to 1964, the University's long-dormant PhD programs were revived and an aggressive research initiative began. Between 1964 and present time, the University has grown into a leading public research university and a key educational partner within the state of Michigan, the nation, and beyond.
