BALTIMOREMarch 13, 2023PRLog — The Top Supporters List (, announced by Career Communication Group’s ( US Black Engineer Magazine, has released the 2023 list honoring the top supporters of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) engineering programs.

The 2023 edition of the Top Supporters List features a diverse group of organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to empowering the next generation of black engineers. This year’s list includes several returning names, including Apple, Google, Amazon, and Lockheed Martin.

Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group, the publisher of US Black Engineer Magazine, emphasized the importance of recognizing these organizations for their contributions. “The Top Supporters List is a celebration of the partnerships that exist between HBCUs and corporations, organizations, and government agencies,’ Taborn said. ‘These partnerships are critical to ensuring that HBCU engineering programs continue to thrive and that students have access to the resources they need to succeed. Their work is ensuring the availability of continued opportunities for posterity.”

US Black Engineer Magazine has been publishing the Top Supporters List since 2005, and the publication has become an important resource for HBCU students, faculty, and administrators. The list is compiled based on data submitted by HBCUs and verified by a panel of experts in the engineering field.
