Applying to HBCUs with engineering programs?

Ok, so I'm trying to narrow down my college list and I'm super interested in engineering. I've heard some HBCUs have strong programs. Do any of you know which HBCUs are ABET accredited for engineering? And what's the rep like for these programs? Like, will I be set with good job prospects after graduation? Thanks in advance!

Greetings! It's wonderful to hear that you're considering HBCUs for your engineering degree. Several HBCUs have ABET-accredited engineering programs. Some notable examples include Howard University, North Carolina A&T State University, Tuskegee University, and North Carolina A&T State University, which is actually known for graduating the largest number of African American engineers at the undergraduate level!

The reputation of these programs is quite strong and the alumni network is robust, which can be advantageous when seeking job opportunities after graduation. Moreover, many companies actively recruit from HBCUs because they recognize the quality of education and diverse perspectives that graduates from these institutions bring to the table.

It would be beneficial for you to visit the campuses if possible, speak with current students and faculty, and delve into their job placement statistics to get a deeper understanding of the prospects after graduation. I hope you find an HBCU with an engineering program that aligns well with your goals and aspirations. Best of luck in your college search and future endeavors!
