Our Mission:

To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.


About Us

Committed to Excellence

We at the NSBE UIUC Chapter are a group of young engineers whose main goal is to fulfill our mission and to encourage minority students on and off campus to pursue majors and careers in the STEM field. This chapter of NSBE is lead by the executive board, a group of students in NSBE that oversee the running and planning of the organization and its events. On campus we offer programs like A Walk for Education (AWFE), study tables, High School Visitation (HSV), and General Body Meetings (GBM). GBMs are days where we invite companies like Boeing, Google, Kimberly- Clark, and more to talk our members about getting jobs and internships, networking, and diversity in STEM. In addition, we developed NSBEJunior Executive Board (JEB) in order to prepare our underclassman to be leaders inside and outside NSBE by having their own executive committee which have their own meetings and plan their own events such as fundraisers.
