Welcome to MAES UC Irvine Chapter!

MAES: Latinos in Science and Engineering was founded in Los Angeles in 1974 by a group of professional engineers wanting to advance and increase the number of Latinos in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by creating opportunities and fostering recognition through its professional, technical, and outreach activities.

The MAES chapter at UC Irvine was started by the Latino and Latina Engineers and Scientists in order to create a sense of community, or "familia," on their home campus. The sense of a "familia" is one of the things that truly separate us from other academic clubs. MAES members are more than just fellow club members, they become our brothers and sisters while here at school. Through all the networking opportunities, student-alumni relations, academic mentoring, and social events that we all participate in, you become close friends and MAES becomes a home away from home.


To encourage Latinos in STEM and promote unity while developing them as better students, leaders, and professionals.


MAES is the premier resource at UC Irvine for Latinos pursuing a career in STEM.


MAES Motto:

Many Cultures, One Familia.
