The MI-LSAMP offers Pre-First-Year Summer Programs for students admitted to any of the four alliance university partners and majoring in the STEM fields. The STEM fields are the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics. While each summer program is unique, students have the opportunity to participate in daily classes such as introduction to engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, computer skills and technical communication. Students are able to participate in teams to find solutions to complex mathematical and engineering problems. Workshops during the summer programs may include topics such as how to balance school work and social activities and tips on how to manage financial resources.
