We bring you the best professional development, engineering, and social experiences with a hispanic twist.


SHPE empowers the Hispanic community to unlock their full potential and create a global impact through heightened awareness, support, and comprehensive development in STEM disciplines.


SHPE envisions a world where Hispanics are esteemed and hold influence as premier innovators, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, driving progress and diversity.


We take responsibility for our collective strength and passion by developing communities, building a diverse and inclusive membership, and challenging each other to be our best.


We act on a foundation of service. We commit to deliver the highest levels of quality, integrity, and ethical behavior. We act with empathy, patience, and understanding.


We value formal education and professional development. We are dedicated to continuous improvement and renewal. We learn from successes, setbacks, and each other.


Embracing diverse cultures and communities, we find strength in adaptation, thrive in unity, and persist with unwavering optimism, fostering growth and interconnectedness.
