The globalization of markets, the integration of the work force, and the need

"When you look at the mix, you understand the challenge we have in putting out
talent from the engineering colleges who will meet the demands of the workplace.
If just one person in this small group needs 14,000 engineers, you know how big
the demand is and how hard it is to meet it. There is a crunch for quality
talent, and it’s a challenge to produce it.”-- Dr. Eugene Deloatch, dean of the
School of Engineering at Morgan State University.
As Commander of the Mississippi Valley Division of the Army Corps of Engineers, Gen. Crear controlled a territory encompassing 370,000 square miles stretching from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. There isn't a major project in the 12 states along the muddy river's watershed that isn't touched by the Corps, the world's largest public engineering firm. And this hurricane, with its 150-m.p.h. arms stretching more than 100 miles on all sides of Katrina's windless eye, had left a trail of destruction in the heart of his domain from the Gulf north through Tennessee.

Exploring a subject that has involved controversies and sensitivities, their research revealed an important story that was obscured for 50 years. Aug 18, 2006, 12:16
A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU).

The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.
Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
