Are you a Math, Engineering or Science major?

The Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement (MESA) Program serves to enrich the experience of students majoring in math, science and engineering at Ventura College. We support financially disadvantaged and/or historically underrepresented students by providing a variety of services to equip MESA students with the skills and attitudes necessary for their successful transfer to a university. 

MESA works closely with industry partners and the University of California, California State University, the California Community Colleges, the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities and the State Department of Education. MESA is nationally recognized for its innovative academic development program.
