A nationwide effort, guided by NACME (National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering), is underway to increase the number of minorities in the engineering profession. The RCA-MEP (Minorities in Engineering Program) seeks to identify talented minority high school students and provide them with an in-depth orientation on the engineering profession. The program is presently in its eighth year, and so far, over 1600 students have participated at 14 plant locations nationwide. The program is described in this paper, as are the results of a survey of over 500 students in 1980. Indications are that a substantial number of students have decided to choose an engineering career path and are presently enrolled at many of the nationwide engineering schools.
