Welcome from The President

Welcome to the Houston Professionals of the National Society of Black Engineers! We are thrilled to lead the 2023-2024 calendar year as a team, with the goal of fulfilling the overall mission of NSBE and the objectives set by the National Board.

The NSBE Mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. Our chapter is committed to this mission through our Programs Zone, which features a range of initiatives such as Professional Development Workshops, Outreach, NSBE Jr programs and Collegiate programs. Our Comms Zone is dedicated to keeping all members informed on past and upcoming events and programs, while our Membership Zone works hard to increase and manage chapter membership.

It's my pleasure to serve as your President this season as we execute this year's agenda. I appreciate your dedicated participation and continued support.

Our Mission

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

Our Vision

We envision a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. In this world, Blacks exceed parity in entering engineering fields, earning degrees, and succeeding professionally.

Our Objectives

The National Society of Black Engineers strives to accomplish the following objectives for our organization:

  • ​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
