This comprehensive program aims to reduce the talent and representation gap among African American technical employment candidates by cultivating the interest and enhancing the preparation of a cohort of rising sophomore engineering students in six designated geographic regions.
The financial resources provided by the NSBE/Honeywell Integrated Pipeline Program (NHIPP) along with mentorship and meaningful work experiences will boost the retention and graduation rates of this cohort, and ultimately, provide a candidate pool of highly qualified engineers.
The NHIPP proposes to develop and implement a three-year pipeline program designed to increase:
The number of underrepresented minority (URM) candidates prepared to enter the Honeywell workforce.
Establish partnerships with key engineering programs
Engage NSBE chapters to improve minority student recruitment and retention
