College of San Mateo’s Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) program recently embarked on an enriching journey to the SACNAS (Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) Conference held in Portland, Oregon. This prestigious event celebrated as the National Diversity in STEM Conference, provided a platform for CSM MESA students to engage with luminaries in their fields, participate in STEM-focused workshops, explore career prospects, and gather insights into pursuing graduate education.

CSM is proud to introduce Maker Faire’s first Industry, Career and College Day, hosted in partnership with Cornell University College of Engineering. The event is designed to give upper level high school and university students, makers and enthusiasts an opportunity to explore career paths, education and job opportunities related to making.

A new College of San Mateo program promoting science, technology, engineering and math education is trying to open the door for some students typically shut out of the region’s wealth of desirable jobs.

CSM has secured a $74,500 MESA grant (Math, Engineering, Science, Achievement) to expand services and academic support to educationally and economically disadvantaged students. The goal of the MESA program is to support student success and transfer to four-year universities for STEM majors.
