M.E.T.S. engineering students were recognized by Fairleigh Dickinson University at TEOP Sponsor Appreciation Day this past Friday, April 13th. Marti Salazar, Jaylynne Garcia, Andrew Heinzmann, and Bryan Escobar were all honored and represented M.E.T.S. well.
TEOP is funded by The Machuga Foundation, Greg Olsen (entrepreneur, astronaut), General Electric , TOYOTA, BAE, UPS, BD and PSEG. The program promotes computer science, engineering, mathematics and engineering technology. High school students go to the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Metropolitan Campus for 10 Saturdays per semester for instruction and project-based learning under the direction of college professors and graduate students.
Each M.E.T.S. student who attends and successfully completes the program and are accepted to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Engineering, Computer Science, Engineering Technologies and Information Technology programs will receive a TEOP scholarship up to $10,000 annually for 4 years. Over 10% of the Jersey City M.E.T.S. high school students have successfully completed this program and are eligible for this award.
