AMIE (Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering) is 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 of minority students to pursue engineering careers.
A facilitator for the recruitment of HBCU engineering Co-ops, interns, graduates 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
