US Black Engineer Magazine Releases Full Top Supporters of HBCU Engineering list
Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group (CCG) stressed the survey aims to look beyond recruitment relationships.
"The Top Supporters of HBCU Engineering list is about employers that are helping to build America's diverse science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) pipeline," Taborn said.
Taborn also said the survey's methodology over 17 years has simply been to ask HBCU engineering deans which employers give the most support. The deans vote up their supporters, and members of the non-profit Advancing Minorities' Interest in Engineering (AMIE) are also able to vote. "We then combine those votes to come up with the list," he said.
'Attract, educate, graduate, and place minorities in engineering.'
Veronica Nelson, executive director of AMIE, said the 15 ABET-accredited HBCU schools produce 30 percent of black engineering bachelor's degree graduates annually.
