HES is a student organization that was established in 1974 to create a community amongst all Latinx engineering and science students at UC Berkeley. We are a collegiate chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, whose educational programs and events directly serve tens of thousands each year representing a diverse Hispanic community.

There are many ways that HES engages in activities that not only help our undergraduate members, but also help the youth of our local community. The unwavering dedication of our student members has made our numerous outreach programs a success.

Our organization influences more and more students every year and has had a great impact on the Berkeley student body. HES has quadrupled in members over the course of two years and we re-established our chapter’s presence at the 2014 SHPE National Conference with over half of our conference attendees placing in rigorous academic competitions.
