The Texas A&M University Chapter of SHPE was founded in 1994 to create an organization where Hispanic engineers could come together. Over the years, we have come together to form a diverse group of students, united in our heritage and our studies. Members become part of the #SHPEfamilia while participating in activities that help them to grow personally, and professionally. The organization helps members network with alumni, current students, and with companies that come host a variety of events.
Enhance opportunities for personal and professional growth through social and academic responsibilities while holding true to the Aggie spirit.
Lead and Prepare all Aggies in their Profession.
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 key 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 changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
SHPE's vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Join SHPE National
