Explore METS Center Programs

  • The METS Program is dedicated to the success of engineering transfer students. Dr. Armando A. Rodriguez has dedicated his time to identifying and answering common questions engineering students have. We encourage you to explore his tools for academic and professional success!

  • The Motivated Engineering Transfer Students (METS) Program is sponsored by a National Science Foundation (NSF) STEP grant ($2.5 million over 5 years) and an NSF S-STEM grant ($600,000 for 4 years). Women and minority students especially, who often need extra encouragement to work to their potential, receive this encouragement through the METS Scholarship Program. The program has proved extremely successful.

  • Our Outreach Program features ASU Campus Visits, in which community college students attend an information session and campus tour on the ASU campus, "ASU Transfer Days", which brings ASU programs, including the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering and METS, to the community college campuses, and "Be an Engineer!" events that are held at Maricopa Community Colleges each semester and are supported by METS to interest students in pursuing a career in engineering.

  • The METS Program hosts monthly workshops at ASU throughout the semester. These survival strategy workshops are targeted to students who have transferred from a community college to the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering at ASU, and are also open to all current community college students considering engineering at the Fulton School.

  • The METS Mentorship program is designed to help new engineering transfer students "learn the ropes" of the Fulton School of Engineering program at ASU. Anyone interested in becoming a mentee will be connected with a fellow transfer student, a mentor, who is willing to share experiences and advice about their time in ASU's engineering program.

  • The METS Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and provides access to computers, free printing for up to 25 pages, a mini fridge so you can bring your lunch, and enough space to bring your laptop and work on homework.
