The Summer Bridge Program is a five-week program sponsored by Ergon. The program is designed to help incoming engineering students adjust to university life and be successful once they enroll in their engineering degree program. Summer Bridge is held in the summer prior to attending MSU and includes coursework in mathematics, science, and engineering. Peer mentoring, undergraduate research, and social activities are also part of the program.
