The Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP) is a non-profit, Detroit-based organization whose mission is to increase the number of historically under-represented minority students who are interested and prepared to enter the fields of engineering and science. Funding Saturday classes at local institutions is one way DAPCEP accomplishes its mission. The University of Detroit Mercy’s Saturday programs are offered on five weekends in the fall and again in the spring. Approximately 700 students in the 4th through 12th grades take courses in math, science, computers and engineering each session. The College of Engineering and Science has been servicing the DAPCEP organization for twenty-eight years and is the leading institution in number of students enrolled. In addition to DAPCEP’s Saturday programs, the College offers more intensive summer daily programs.
Dates & Times:
- Fall classes run on five consecutive Saturdays in October and November.
- Spring classes run on five Saturdays in March and April.
