San Diego MESA Alliance (SDMA), a collaborative organization formed of the six sister programs from three MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) educational divisions, including:

  • Community College: Cuyamaca College, San Diego City College, Southwestern College
  • University: SDSU, and UC San Diego.

The SDMA represents a K-16 pipeline for math, engineering and science. Collaboration is the operation theme for the Alliance; joint activities are the norm, rather than the exception, including academic counseling workshops, Academic Excellence Workshop faciliator training, university transfer days, mentoring, tutoring, recruitment, outreach, resume workshops, industry nights, career fairs, industry job shadowing, industry tours, and grant writing.


The History of Evening with Engineers

In February of 2002, MWWD & Water Department hosted a Job Fair jointly with the alumni chapter of NSBE in San Diego. The City provided the venue at MOC II, paid for catering, and set up the event complete with employer exhibits, a resume & interview tips panel consisting of human resources managers at member companies, and a speaker on job search skills provided by NSBE's local alumni chapter.
