Mission Made Possible

On April 29, 2017, we celebrated our current and future leaders in a night of excellence celebrating Black Engineers, while awarding $8000 to Houston's brightest students.  Ron Green, Former City of Houston Controller, was our featured speaker.  We also recognized our members, who have contributed tremendously to our chapter and the greater Houston community.

Scholarship Recipients

These extraordinary high school and college students exemplify our mission of increasing the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically.  We are honored to have selected these future leaders of tomorrow.
