Dear Partners and Colleagues:

Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) celebrates 30 years of Achieving Diversity through Sustainable Partnerships. 30 years later, it is ever more important to continue to invest in the critical and emerging needs of our HBCU Schools of Engineering, government and corporate partners. Our immediate goal is to prepare AMIE for even greater success by delivering capable and qualified engineers to take on the challenges of this dynamic space.

Collaboration, innovation and agility are extremely critical attributes for our national and global footprint. We must be intentional on what we will deliver in terms of talent, research capabilities and ensuring a strong partnership with our partners. Our (16) ABET accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Schools of Engineering partners continue to graduate 30% of all African American engineers in the United States. We want to ensure this successful partnership continues to enable the AMIE Partners to increase its impact and influence to deliver on our mission.

AMIE is committed to:

• Focusing on the enhancement of research capabilities by conducting a thorough review of its strengths and future needs

• Looking internally at our governance model and enhancing it to meet the needs of our partners and institutions

• Sharing best practices among our institutions, corporate partners and government partners

• Being the enabler and collaborator to other key STEM programs by providing linkages and connections into these various communities and initiatives.

AMIE continues to solidify its place as a unique governing body that will have precision focused engagements in order to position itself as a reliable resource to our universities and partnering organizations.

AMIE is positioned to continue supporting the needs of our HBCU Schools of Engineering, corporations and government partners by continuing to embark on strategic initiatives designed to advance institutions and students.

AMIE will continue to seek the support of all corporations and government entities to cultivate and nurture its graduates as they embark in careers in research, industry and government.

AMIE is adding value to our nation by embracing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and supplying education/research excellence.

For more information, please contact Veronica L. Nelson, AMIE Executive Director. You can also visit our website at www.amiepartnerships.org

Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) 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 and computer science careers.

The outcome of an initiative by Abbott Laboratories in 1992, AMIE represents a coalition of industry, government agencies and the ABET accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Schools of Engineering who see a diversified workforce as a competitive advantage and an essential business need.

The (16) ABET accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Schools of Engineering 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 produced 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). Thus, the HBCU Schools of Engineering are a great resource pool for minority engineering talent.

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 for co-op, intern and full-time opportunities at member organizations,

• An avenue for members to exchange “Best Practices” and “Solutions” for the development of a diversified engineering workforce, and

• An enabler for the creation of Engineering Research/Technology transfer agreements.

AMIE Value Proposition Statement:

AMIE assures the STEM Pipeline has diverse and exceptional talent for industrial and government businesses who seek diverse perspective in their workforce. Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) provides a coalition with direct access to almost a third of graduating minority engineers annually. Unlike working individually with each partner in the three areas (university, industry and government), AMIE’s coalition provides a holistic opportunity to influence educators and businesses, promote minority student’s pursuit of engineering and achieve greater diversity in engineering.



AMIE is the premier organization that develops industry, government and university partnerships to achieve diversity in the engineering workforce.


AMIE is a catalyst that forges Industry-Government/Academia partnerships that support programs to advance minorities’ interest in engineering.


As a coalition of lndustry, Government Agencies and ABET accredited HBCU Engineering Schools, AMIE is committed to:

• Promoting and encouraging minority students to pursue engineering degrees

• Facilitating the recruitment of HBCU engineering co-ops, interns and graduates to member organizations

• Providing a forum for member organizations to exchange ideas on “Best Practices” and “Issues” related to developing a diverse engineering workforce

• Facilitating the forging of Engineering Research and Technology Transfer Partnerships between the AMIE HBCUs and the AMIE coalition non-academic members
