Dr. Manuel P. Berriozabal, a professor of mathematics at UTSA, founded the San Antonio Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP) in 1979. PREP is an academically intense, mathematics-based, summer project conducted at most college and university campuses throughout San Antonio. The program identifies achieving middle and high school students with the interest and potential for careers in engineering, science, technology, and other mathematics-related areas and reinforces them in pursuit of these fields.
Enrollment particularly targets students who are female and members of minority groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in these professions. PREP stresses the development of abstract reasoning and problem solving skills, as well as the application of this knowledge, through coursework, team projects, class presentations, and examinations.
