About Our Organization!


N.S.B.E. was founded at Purdue University in 1975 by six people: (the late) John Logan, Edward Coleman, George Smith, Stan Kirtley, Brian Harris, and Anthony Harris. Their nickname is ‘The Chicago Six.’ The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) with more than 30,000 members around the world, NSBE is one of the largest student-governed organizations based in the United States. 

The Torch:

The NSBE torch symbolizes our everlasting burning desire to achieve success in this competitive society and to affect a positive change on the quality of life for all people. The lightning bolt represents the striking impact that will be felt by the Society and industry due to the contributions and accomplishments made by dedicated members of the National Society of Black Engineers. NSBE’s mission is “to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”

What We Do:

The organization is dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals. NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development activities, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more. NSBE comprises 394 active chapters — 242 collegiate, 70 professional and 82 pre-collegiate — located in six geographic regions. NSBE is governed by an executive board of college students and engineering professionals and is operated by a professional staff at its World Headquarters, located in Alexandria, Va.
