USBE Magazine Reveals Rankings in the All-time Top HBCU Engineering Supporters

Since 2003, engineering deans of historically black college and university (HBCU) engineering programs, and the Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) corporate-academic alliance, have completed Career Communications Group’s (CCG) Top Supporters of Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Engineering Schools list, a survey conducted by US Black Engineer & Information Technology (USBE) magazine. 

Top Supporters are companies and government agencies considered most supportive of HBCU engineering programs and contribute to the institutional missions of these schools. 

While making their decision, HBCU Engineering deans consider support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research, participation on advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, internship and co-op opportunities, and job offers related to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. 

To mark the 15th year of the Top Supporters survey, private and government supporters have been ranked in five hierarchies based on the number of survey mentions since 2003. 

For 2017, there are 394 employers in USBE magazine’s All-Time Top Supporter ranking system, which features five tiers based on how many times the organization has appeared on the list:  Diamond (14 annual appearances), Platinum (13-9), Gold (8-6), Silver (5-3), and Bronze (2-1).
