The National Technical Association was founded in 1925 by a group of prominent leaders with the aspirations of developing a safe haven and “the voice” for minorities in architecture, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Since NTAs beginning it has provided a strong foundation for members such as Dr. Knox Tull, founder of Jackson and Tull Premier Engineering Solutions, Professor Curtis Lee Jones Jr., a Physics professor at the University of Maryland BioPark, Dr. Aprille J Ericsson, an Aerospace Engineer and educator, and most importantly for our future, Mikela Pryor, undergraduate student majoring in Biological Systems Engineering.

The National Technical Association members consist of both undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students from HBCUs all over the nation. Created for us by us, it is imperative that the next generation of global economic leaders continue the legacy of the National Technical Association for future generations to come.
