About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
MAES
Purpose:
The purpose of the MAES: Latinos in Science and Engineering is to promote the professional and personal development of minorities pursuing degrees in engineering and science. We encourage the involvement of minorities in higher education, as well as provide academic assistance and growth opportunities in the STEM industry. We do this by providing scholarships and mentoring, networking and professional contacts, and fostering leadership skills. In addition, we understand the responsibilities that life at a university brings. Therefore, we strive to create an inclusive atmosphere for students to meet others who have been on the same path and help them smooth the road. The application of these personal and professional skills comes together to prepare MAES members for success.
