Abstract : Lincoln University, under the Lincoln Advanced Science and Engineering Reinforcement (LASER) Program, has been actively identifying and recruiting minority students for careers in science and engineering since 1981. The program has successfully identified and recruited over 100 students for majors in technical fields. To date over 70% of these students have completed or will complete technical degrees in engineering, physics, chemistry and computer science. Of those completing the undergraduate degree over 40% have gone on to graduate and professional school. Minority students completing their senior year of high school, who have demonstrated an aptitude and interest in engineering, science or related fields are invited to participate in the LASER Program. Starting the summer following graduation the students selected for the program begin their studies at Lincoln. During the following two years, students continue their course of study in basic science, engineering, mathematics, communications and liberal studies. The students have an opportunity to work in industries or laboratories as a summer intern or co-op student. Upon completing the two years of study engineering students transfer to an engineering school to complete their engineering degree, while science majors continue their studies at Lincoln.
