Celebrating Black engineers
“The life and contributions of the Knox brothers clearly shows that while brilliance is precious, having an environment where brilliance from all sources can be realized and appreciated is what paves the way for revolutionary scientific breakthroughs.”
Sharniece Holland, MEMS lecturer, recently co-authored a feature on William and Lawrence Knox, brothers who made significant contributions in a number of areas, including the Manhattan Project in the 1940s.

We are McKelvey
McKelvey Engineering offers a wide range of opportunities for Black students, from the National Society of Black Engineers to research-intensive summer programs. But we realize there is an opportunity for growth in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion, and we are committed to addressing longstanding social injustice and inequality within the school and larger community.
We are developing new programs, policies and resources, but most importantly, we are listening. By working together, we can enact change.
