Are you interested in participating in a new NSBE group here at Augsburg? NSBE, which stands for ‘National Society of Black Engineers’, is a national organization designed to support and promote the aspirations of collegiate, pre-collegiate, and professional individuals in engineering and technology. NSBE’s mission is “to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”
This program is geared towards students who identify as Black and are interested in pursuing an education and/or career in engineering or applied physical sciences (Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics). Biology & Bio-psychology majors can also qualify.
These are the goals and objectives that a NSBE chapter at Augsburg would strive to accomplish:
-Stimulate and develop student interest in the various engineering disciplines
-Strive to 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
-Function as a representative body on issues and developments that affect the careers of Black Engineers
