We envision a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers.
The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers is: To increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
The NSBE Professionals organization is dedicated to positively impacting lives by leveraging a global community that empowers members to grow technically, access influential leadership, advance careers and inspire the next generation of Black technical professionals.
