Abstract: It appears that the national demand for engineers will increase in future years. To meet this demand, besides traditional prospective engineering students, minorities and women have to be encouraged to accept engineering as a profession. The engineering summer institute is one possible way to expose the high school students to the broad area of engineering. Such a program at The University of Texas at El Paso is discussed here, including its potential for providing future engineering students.
