Welcome to AMIE...

AMIE (Advancing Minorities' Interest in Engineeringis a non-profit organization whose purpose is to expand corporate, government, and academic alliances to implement and support programs to attract, educate, graduate and place underrepresented minority students in engineering careers.
The outcome of an initiative by Abbott Laboratories in 1992, AMIE represents a coalition of industry and government agencies, and the ABET accredited Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) Schools of Engineering, who see a diversified workforce as a competitive advantage and an essential business strategy. AMIE acts as…

  • A catalyst that forges Industry-Government/Academia partnerships that support programs to advance minorities interest in engineering.
  • A promoter and encourager to minority students to pursue engineering careers.
  • A facilitator for the recruitment of minority students (coops, interns, graduates, etc.) at member organizations.
  • An avenue for members to exchange “Best Practices” and solutions for the development of a diversified engineering workforce.
  • An enabler for the creation of Engineering Research/Technology transfer agreements

 AMIE HBCU Partners in the News

Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) primary purpose is to facilitate partnerships between corporations and/or government agencies and one or more of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) engineering programs to attract, educate, graduate and place underrepresented minority students in engineering careers.  Our (15) HBCU Partner Institutions represent less than 3% of all the Engineering Schools in the country, yet they produce over 30% of all African American engineers in the United States.  Approximately one-third of African American graduates in Science and Engineering are also produce by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).  One quarter of PhD recipients in Science and Engineering received their undergraduate degree from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).  Our (15) HBCU Partner Institutions are a rich resource pool for minority engineering talent.  I would like to share a few stories about three (3) of our HBCU Partners.  Thank you for your continued support of AMIE and our HBCU Partner Engineering Schools. ---Veronica Nelson, AMIE's Executive Director
