Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

What is SHPE?

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 of the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professionals and student chapters throughout the nation.
