The Cullen College of Engineering seeks to provide increased opportunities for students with diverse backgrounds. To implement this policy, the college has established a special program called PROMES (pronounced "promise"), the Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies. This program provides support in the academic, social, and financial areas, with strong emphasis on making a student's first year in college a success. Incoming PROMES students enroll in special courses and workshops designed to lead to that success. PROMES provides an informal setting for the new students. Academic monitoring, tutoring, general orientation, and where applicable, career and personal counseling are all part of the program.
Financial aid for PROMES students is available through normal scholarship and financial aid programs, grants, special PROMES scholarships, and after the freshman year the Cooperative Education Program. The program’s annual Christmas party and spring awards banquet enhance the campus social life of PROMES students.
PROMES is open to engineering students of all ethnicities and nationalities.
