Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) has announced that its annual conference will be held online September 9-10, 2020.
The theme for the event, which is hosted by the organization that develops industry, government and university partnerships to achieve diversity in the engineering workforce, is “A New Decade: Discovering the Possibilities through Research and Sustained Partnerships.”
AMIE’s college and university partners include all the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that have ABET-accredited Schools of Engineering.
Approximately one-third of African American graduates in science and engineering are produced at HBCUs and one-quarter of Ph.D.s in science and engineering receive their undergraduate degrees at HBCUs.
The event features round-table discussions focused on research and programs that fulfill AMIE’s mission to attract, educate, graduate and place minority students in engineering and computer science careers. The AMIE Design Challenge winners will get to present at the annual conference.
AMIE academic partners in the Council of Engineering Deans of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities are:
Alabama A&M University
Florida A&M University
Jackson State University
Morgan State University
Norfolk State University
North Carolina A&T State University
