The “Top Supporters of HBCU Engineering Schools list surveys the deans of the 14 ABET-accredited, HBCU engineering programs, and the corporate-academic alliance, Advancing Minorities Interest in Engineering (AMIE).

The survey asks these individuals to list the corporate and government/non-profit organizations that provide the most support to their schools. In completing the annual survey, the institutions consider the following factors: support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research and mentorship projects, participation on advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, co-ops, and career opportunities.

Supporting HBCUs is essential to the development of our nations potential. Americas HBCUs have produced many leaders across all professions, and continue to be an engine of economic growth, both in the surrounding communities and for the graduates of the institutions. President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13532 on February 26, 2010 to increase opportunities for these institutions to participate in and benefit from Federal programs, and ensure that the United States of America has the highest proportion of college graduates in the entire world by the year 2020.
