National Society of Black Engineers
"Welcome to the Hampton University Chapter of National Society of Black Engineers Website. As a fellow engineer, I understand the hard work and determination it takes to excel in our engineering program. Our NSBE chapter is here to provide all of our engineers with the resources, mentors, and knowledge that they will need to excel within this field. We also work to give all members a social outlet when a break is needed from school work. To all Freshmen, I invite you to join our NSBE family on our path to success. To all Seniors, I hope your NSBE resources have helped you figure out your next phase in this engineering world. To everyone in between, continue your hard work and NSBE dedication while you become the best Engineer, Scientist or Mathematician that you can be."
The National Society of Black Engineers strives to accomplish the following objectives for our organization:
- Stimulate and develop student interest in the various engineering disciplines.
- Strive to increase the number of minority students studying engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
- Encourage members to seek advanced degrees in engineering or related fields and to obtain professional engineering registrations.
- Promote public awareness of engineering and the opportunities for Blacks and other minorities in that profession.
- Function as a representative body on issues and developments that affect the careers of Black Engineers.
New and innovative project ideas are generated and implemented throughout the year on the chapter, regional and national levels. Some of NSBE's present activities include tutorial programs, group study sessions, high school/junior high outreach programs, technical seminars and workshops, a national communications network (NSBENET), two national magazines (NSBE Magazine and the NSBE Bridge), an internal newsletter, a professional newsletter (The Career Engineer, a supplement in the NSBE Magazine), resume books, career fairs, awards, banquets and an annual national convention.
The NSBE's mission is "to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.” The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) with more than 30,000 members, is one of the largest student-managed organization in the country. NSBE is comprised of more than 233 chapters on college and university campuses, 65 Alumni Extension chapters nationwide and 89 Pre-College chapters. These chapters are geographically divided into six regions. Read more on the NSBE Official Website »
