Portland State University
Portland State University launched Oregon MESA in 1989 for the purpose of encouraging greater participation from underrepresented students in STEM. Housed at the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science at PSU, our location allows us to host workshops and events that give students exposure to college classrooms, campus and student role models.

“The future of this country of ours is in your hands. And if you think creatively in whatever you do, whether you be an inventor, a scientist or an engineer your lives will be much better and you will help all those around you to live better lives.” -Jerry Lemelson
