The National Society of Black Engineers is one of the largest student run organizations in the United States with a total membership of over 31,000 members and growing. Our mission is to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community”. At Tandon, we are currently one of the largest student organizations with 193 members. We have also been committed to enhancing our members’ college experience by supporting them with conference attendance and event programming. Last year, we were awarded Student Organization of The Year and were recognized for our professional development initiatives.
Every year, the National Society of Black Engineers hosts two major conferences: The Fall Regional Conference and the National Convention in the Spring. Last year marked the first in-person regional conference in Syracuse, NY since the start of the pandemic. We financed 21 students who attended the conference from the 10th to the 13th of November by covering their accommodation, transportation, and registration (if in absolute need). This year, the National Convention which attracts a multitude of students across the United States and Western Africa will be in Kansas City, MI. It commences on the 22nd of March and ends on the 26th. Conferences are an opportunity for students to network with other students and professionals in their fields of interest. Students can also interact with recruiters from top companies actively working towards implementing their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives. In addition to this, conferences provide professional development and skill-building workshops that enrich our members’ post-graduation experience. All support is appreciated to help enhance the development of our engineers! One Fiyah!
