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.
The Texas A&M University Chapter of SHPE was founded in 1994 to create an organization where hispanic engineers could come together. Since then, SHPE-TAMU has become a premiere club on campus. SHPE-TAMU has received recognition from the Hispanic Presidents' Council, an umbrella organization, as Hispanic Organization of the Year 2002-2003. In addition, this organization has been awarded as the best of 700+ clubs on the Texas A&M Campus with the title of Recognized Student Organization of the Year 2002-2003. SHPE-TAMU has also been noticed on the regional level as it received the Regional Chapter of the Year 2003-2004 for Region V. We hope to continue this commitment to excellence in the years to come.
