Career Connections - The College Career Site

Career Planning Center for Beginning Scientists and Engineers

The Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (COSEPUP) report, Reshaping the Graduate Education of Scientists and Engineers, recommended that better information and guidance be provided to upper-division undergraduate and graduate science and engineering students and post-docs so these individuals could improve their decision-making relative to their career and education. To respond to this need, the National Research Council (NRC) Policy Division (PD) and Office of Scientific and Engineering Personnel (OSEP) has developed this "one-stop shopping" location for guidance and information titled A Career Planning Center for Beginning Scientists and Engineers (CPC). This center builds on existing activities of scientific and engineering disciplinary societies.

Society for Mexican American Scientists and Engineers

The Society of Mexican American Engineers and Scientists (MAES) was founded in 1974 for the purpose of increasing the number of Mexican Americans and other Hispanics in the technical and scientific fields.

The Society now represents the Mexican American community in the all-important technological arena on issues related to education, economics, environment and research. As a mature organization with a national membership representing all the engineering and scientific disciplines, the society now has turned its focus on the youth of our people. Many of its programs, with the financial help of members, companies and government agencies, are now directed at increasing the number of students at all grade levels who will study and prepare to enter our technical professions.

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

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.
