About Austin Pre-freshman Engineering Program (AusPREP)

Austin Pre-freshman Engineering Program (AusPREP) at Huston-Tillotson University is one of the Texas Pre-freshman Engineering Programs (TexPREP) located on college campuses in Texas. PREP was founded to identify high achieving middle and high school students with the potential and interest in becoming scientists and engineers and to reinforce them in the pursuit of these fields. TexPREP began in 1979 at the University of Texas at San Antonio under the leadership of Dr. Manuel Berriozabal and has been recognized nationally for preparing students for college engineering and science studies.

AusPREP will not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, color, age, handicap, or national origin in selecting students for participation nor in the administration of this project. AusPREP strongly encourages women and students from minority groups, who have been traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering, to apply for participation. Middle school students who are currently in grades sixth, seventh, or eighth are encouraged to apply for PREP year one. Students currently in the fifth grade are encouraged to apply for the Pre-Algebra Institute.

Career Awareness Speakers

We are also seeking STEM professionals to come in and bring their perspective to students for our daily Career Awareness sessions. The AusPREP program increases opportunities in the STEM fields for high-achieving, under-represented students by building their skills in math and engineering concepts during a 7-week summer program. Career Awareness sessions are held daily from June 10th – July 23rd from 10:30 am – 11:30 am in the Auditorium in Dickey-Lawless Hall on Huston Tillotson’s campus east of downtown Austin (900 Chicon St, Austin).
