SHPE-NYC History

The New York City Chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE-NYC) formed in 1987 and was incorporated in 1988 by a group of Hispanic engineers and scientists responding to a need to unite Hispanic culture and professionals in the New York City Metropolitan area. The founders aspired to both provide positive role models to young professionals while creating a strong member network.



SHPE History

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the City of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.

The concept of networking was the essential basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.

SHPE is the leading social-technical organization whose primary function is to enhance and achieve the potential of Hispanics in engineering, math and science. For detailed information about SHPE as a national organization visit www.shpe.org.

The SHPE Mission: SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.

The SHPE Vision: SHPE's vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
