Make it Mississippi™
Each fall the Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence hosts regional events on the Gulf Coast, Jackson Metro area, and North Mississippi. These Make It Mississippi events are for prospective students to learn more about the CME and the opportunities within the program. This program is by invitation only.
CME Discovery Day Experience
Through our application process for admission and scholarship, we invite students to attend one of our two Discovery Days held in early February. This is an all-day event that starts at 8:30 in the morning and continues until 3:30 that afternoon. In order to attend, a student must have completed and submitted a CME application found in the Special Programs and Scholarship application.
Discovery Day is an ideal time for students to learn more about the CME and explore how this program can complement your college experience. The Discovery Day activities are designed to give you a sample of what you will encounter as a CME student. You will participate in specially designed team development challenges, meet with current CME students, learn more about relevant coursework, hear about our CO-OP/Internship opportunities, visit with CME faculty, and interview with the CME staff. This event will help us identify those students who would be best suited for an academic career within the CME. Because our fall enrollment is limited to 50 new students, we take these events very seriously. Invitations for Discovery Day will be sent mid-January. Since Discovery Day has limited space, and is on a first come first serve basis, applicants that are unable to attend are also given a phone interview option.
