    The Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) was established at the University of Houston in 1974 to provide a positive learning environment that supports the needs of underrepresented groups (women and minorities) and first-generation-in-college students in engineering. PROMES builds a diverse "community of scholars" within the Cullen College of Engineering: PROMES students learn together, study together, socialize together, and encourage each other to be leaders here at UH.
