The National Society of Black Engineer's (NSBE) mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
NSBE is comprised of more than 190 chapters on coll ege and university campuses and more than 100 Alumni Extension chapters nation wide. These chapters are geographically divided into six regions. NSBE had its genesis at a national conference planned and hosted by the Society of Black Engineers at Purdue University in April 1975. Black Engineering students from the United States and Canada attended the event. From this meeting of concerned students and educators, NSBE was born. In 1976, NSBE was inc orporated as a non-profit organization in the State of Texas. NSBE also became recognized as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 © (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The future of the National Society of Black Engineers is unlimited. With the continued dedication of the members and suppo rters, NSBE can and will achieve its full potential. The projects listed above are but a small sample of the infinite possibilities.

T he lightning bolt represents the striking impact that will be felt by the Society and industry due to the contributions and accomplishments made by dedicated members of the National Society of Black Engineers.
