National Society of Black Engineers, NYC

Our lifelong mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. We strive to accomplish the following objectives for our organization: stimulate and develop student interest in the various engineering disciplines; 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; and function as a representative body on issues and developments that affect the careers of Black Engineers.
