 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
