Latino Organization Focusing on Developing STEM Leaders

The Mexican American Engineering Society (MAES) is the foremost Latino organization for the development of STEM leaders in the academic, executive, and technical communities. MAES was founded in Los Angeles in 1974 to increase the number of Mexican Americans and other Hispanics in the technical and scientific fields. The idea to establish a professional society for Mexican American engineers originated with an aerospace electronics engineer who had served for several years as a volunteer for programs directed at combating the alarming number of high school dropouts. He envisioned a national organization that would serve as a source for role models, address the needs of its members, and become a resource for industry and students. Individuals pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree and enrolled in a two-year, four-year, or graduate institution of higher learning are invited to join MAES. The annual student membership dues of $10 provides career center access, MAES scholarship opportunities; access to the MAES online community, mentorship opportunities, and more.
