SECME was established in 1975 as the Southeastern Consortium for Minorities in Engineering by the Engineering Deans at six Southeastern universities: University of Alabama, University of Florida, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of South Carolina, University of Tennessee and Tuskegee Institute now Tuskegee University. In 1997, the name was changed to SECME Inc.to better represent the territories we serve today, which extend to schools, universities, science- and technology-based business and industry, and public and private agencies in 17 states (from New York to Arizona),the District of Columbia, and Grand Bahama.
SECME Mission: To increase the pool of historically underrepresented and under-served students who will be prepared to enter and complete post-secondary studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); thus creating a diverse and globally competitive workforce.
