METS recognized for fulfilling New American University vision
The Motivated Engineering Transfer Students (METS) program, administered by Mary Anderson-Rowland, associate professor in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, received a $100,000 grant from the Women & Philanthropy fund in the ASU Foundation. The fund supports initiatives and programs that help fulfill the New American University vision of excellence, access and impact.
The METS program provides engineering and computer science community college transfer students a solid platform of workshops, mentoring, a study center with computer and printing access, and a variety of student resources and events to enhance students’ transition to ASU.
The METS Center and its resources offer transfer students a successful transition into university life and to obtaining a four-year engineering/computer science degree in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
