A tenth annual survey by US Black Engineer & Information Technology (USBE&IT) magazine has revealed the corporate and government organizations that are considered most supportive of the nation’s historically Black engineering schools.
Participants in the “Top Supporter” survey were the deans of the 14 ABET-accredited, historically Black college and university (HBCU) engineering programs, and the corporate-academic alliance, Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE). The survey asked the deans to list the ten corporate and ten government or non-profit organizations that provide the most support to their schools.
Tyrone Taborn, editor in chief of USBE&IT magazine and chairman and CEO of the magazine’s publisher, Career Communications Group, Inc., says, “Doing this survey for the tenth consecutive time, we are consistently finding many organizations that are doing their fair share in building the STEM pipeline. This survey reflects the perception that the deans and AMIE share about the level of support that their institutions receive from corporations, which is very important information for our reader’s to know. Black students and professionals want to know what these organizations are doing for their colleges because they want to work for employers that are committed to their community.”
On the corporate side, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, The Boeing Company and Shell Oil top the list.
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) headed the government and non-profit list followed closely by NASA, Army Research Lab, Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation.
Here is a complete list of the companies that were named as the 2012 Top Supporters of the HBCUs:
