The National Society of Black Engineers’ (NSBE) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit association dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals. NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more!
The purpose of the NSBE Boston Professionals is to support NSBE in a way that:
1) Develops and enhances NSBE programs
2) Increases technical awareness
3) Encourages scholastic achievement
4) Stimulates enthusiasm in the Black engineering community in order to promote technical expertise, professionalism, and fellowship among Black engineers.
In March 1988, at NSBE’s 14th Annual Conference, the organization approved the adoption of the NSBE Alumni Extension (NSBE-AE) now renamed NSBE Boston Professionals. This addition to the overall NSBE structure not only promoted the participation and the input from the professional engineering community, but also provided a mechanism for NSBE graduating seniors to continue their involvement with the organization.
Since its inception, NSBE Boston Professionals has developed annual programs, which support the Black and professional communities in the Boston metropolitan area. The goals of the organization are to promote technical expertise, professionalism, and fellowship amongst studying and practicing engineers, technical professionals, and scientists. In NSBE Boston Professionals, one can hone professional skills while making a significant social contribution.
