Since 2003, HBCU engineering deans and the Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) corporate-academic alliance have completed Career Communications Group’s annual survey.
While making their decision, HBCU engineering deans consider support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research, participation in advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, internship and co-op opportunities, and job offers related to STEM fields.
The survey asks respondents to list the corporate and government/nonprofit organizations that support their schools the most. In completing the annual survey, the institutions consider support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research and mentorship projects, participation in advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, co-ops, and career opportunities.
