MSU Mechanical Engineering Minority Organization

MEMO seeks to provide a support network for undergraduate and graduate minority students in mechanical engineering, to recruit high-achieving minority students into the Michael W. Hall School of Mechanical Engineering, to increase the graduation rates of minority students and in addition, assist in the development of diverse, innovative, ethical and socially well-rounded engineers who excel academically and professionally. The ME school is working closely with MEMO to improve the percentage of minorities starting and completing an ME degree at MSU.

Through MEMO, minority students will have the opportunity to recruit, retain and reconnect with diverse engineers and students of similar backgrounds.

“Students can seek mentorship from upper-level students, as well as graduate students and faculty to aid in their registration throughout the mechanical engineering program,” said Jamel Alexander, graduate student leader.

The ME school and MEMO would like to see minority enrollment in ME at MSU grow significantly. An increase in minority students will also aid the school in recruiting and retaining underrepresented students. In addition, the school would like to see an increase in the number of scholarships to support minority ME students.
