BALTIMORE - March 12, 2019 - PRLog -- US Black Engineer magazine, published by Career Communications Group, Inc., host of the annual BEYA STEM Conference, has released Top 10 Supporters of Historically Black College and University (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.

HBCUs with Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology(ABET) designation include:  Alabama A&M University College of Engineering, Florida A&M University – Florida State University College of Engineering, Hampton University School of Engineering & Technology, Howard University College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer Sciences, Jackson State University College of Science, Engineering and Technology, Morgan State University Clarence M. Mitchell, Jr. School of Engineering, North Carolina A&T University College of Engineering, Norfolk State University College of Science, Engineering, and Technology, Prairie View A&M University Department of Engineering Technology, Southern University and A&M College Department of Electrical Engineering, Tennessee State University's College of Engineering, Tuskegee University College of Engineering, University of the District of Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Maryland Eastern Shore Department of Engineering and Aviation Sciences, and Virginia State University School of Engineering, Science and Technology.

"Our corporate and academic partnerships include scholarships, student internships, co-ops, and full-time job opportunities," Nelson said. "They also include exchange programs between engineers and faculty, student projects, student professional development, design competitions, research collaborations, corporate advisors matching college curricula with emerging technologies," she said.
