NSBE members gather together at a conference


Meet the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)

The NSBE is dedicated to increasing the number of culturally-responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. Our goal is to alleviate the challenges that Black students often encounter when entering the workforce or the classroom. To achieve this, the UCSC chapter of NSBE provides a safe and supportive environment through initiatives such as study jams, speaker series, professional development workshops, and conventions/conferences.
