‘Start-Up nation’ refers to what some call an “economic miracle”- the fact that Israel, a 69 year old country of 8.5 million people, has a whopping 93 companies listed on the NASDAQ. Israel has more high-tech start-ups and a larger venture capital industry per capita than any other country in the world.

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers is a student-led national professional organization that aims at empowering and supporting Hispanic students in the STEM fields and Hispanic students with STEM interests.
Our mission is to encourage and promote opportunities for STEM field majoring Hispanic students both on campus and off campus in the community.
In the fall semester of 1987, Carlos Menjivar of Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the oldest known Latino fraternity, realized there was a need for more Latino representation in engineering at Stony Brook University. Together, he and Luis A. Gomez envisioned an organization that would unite, support, and empower Latinos in the engineering field. With the support of the Engineering department, their first meeting in 1995 was a huge success and the Stony Brook University professional chapter of the Society of Hispanic Engineers (SHE) was born. By unanimous vote, their first Executive Board was elected:
President Luis A. Gomez
Vice President Orlando Montan
Treasurer Annette Pamis
Secretary Malbin Mendoza
Public Relations Managers Lily Liy and Jorge Resto.
The organization would go on to host field trips and professional guest speakers so students would have the opportunity to network and build relationships with individuals in their prospective industries. Collectively, they worked on increasing the number of Hispanic engineering students on campus, providing guidance and aid so that these students could flourish and complete their education.
In the fall semester of 1996, the organization changed their name from the Society of Hispanic Engineers (SHE) to the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).
SHPE National Conference
Our members attend the biggest Hispanic career fair of the year. Events hosted throughout the year train students for interviews & competitions.
- Stony Brok SHPE 2017 graduate Franklin Panora wins $10,000 1st place prize at Nissan Design Competition
- Geuris German – co-op spring internship at Air Products & Chemical Inc.
- Vanessa Herrera – co-op spring internship at Boston Scientific
- Abrar Taseen – co-op spring internship at BorgWarner
High school students from the community are invited to Stony Brook to learn about STEM careers.
In 2017, Longwood High School attended the event which included icebreakers, a STEM career presentation, lunch, a tour of the Stony Brook campus, and workshops about working with Arduino, 3D, and green screen.
Noche de Ciencias
We ignite curiosity and incentivize students and parents alike to consider attending college and pursuing STEM.
In 2017, Stony Brook SHPE hosted an interactive event at Brentwood High School. Workshops in both English & Spanish informed parents of financial aid opportunities while students interacted in activities and competitions where they were introduced to electronics and stem.
Now in 2018, Stony Brook SHPE is planning on hosting two Noche de Ciencias at Brentwood and Longwood High School, two of the biggest public high schools in Suffolk County.
Noche De Ciencias is an English-Spanish presented event so Hispanic immigrant families are effectively reached out to and communicated with.
Financial Aid Workshops
These workshops teach parents about financial aid opportunities on a federal and state level, scholarships, private and state colleges, and much more.
Arduinos are a simple, cheap way to teach kids basic electronic concepts that are used in everyday machines and robots. They learn from pre-built robots and have a chance to build their own.
STEM Student Panel
A panel presented by Stony Brook students informs high school students about their own experiences applying to college, choosing a majora, and being successful in college.
