Cooperative Development Energy Program (CDEP)

The objective of CDEP’s M-SEA program is to provide a continuous pipeline for minority and female students from 9th grade through the PhD majoring in STEM disciplines. The students selected to participate in M-SEA are academically-talented and considered the cream of the crop in their respective schools. These students are recruited throughout the nation and are academically prepared to take on the challenging classroom and laboratory sessions taught by the faculty. M-SEA is a learning experience that goes beyond what the students are normally taught at their middle schools and high schools. The professors expose the students to advance mathematical concepts, hands-on laboratory experiments, and mentoring activities. Also, M-SEA inspires the students to pursue careers in STEM disciplines by the excellent field trips. M-SEA consists of four different academies made up of four academic classifications, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students.
