About Us

The San Francisco Bay Area Society Hispanic Profesional Engineers (SHPE) Chapter was founded on June 14, 1983 with the mission to fulfill the goals of the SHPE organization by connecting with professionals, students, and the community. We strive to make a positive impact by serving as role models in many areas such as professional development and student outreach. With the help of our members and leaders we have found new and innovative ways to address the needs of our Hispanic community.
