MESA at DVC is a community of students, faculty and STEM professionals working together to support and prepare students who are pursuing STEM fields.
MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Achievement) is a statewide program for full-time students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics. The program provides academic enrichment, major-specific advising, research experience, early exposure to four year schools, professional development and addresses other important needs of science and engineering majors. The program is supported by industry, so students learn firsthand about career options and learn about scholarships, internships and special programs. If you are the first in your family to attend college and/or are receiving financial aid, then you are eligible to apply.
According to the latest data (2011-12), of those MESA community college students who transferred to four-year institutions, 97 percent entered these colleges and universities as math or science majors.
