About NSBE CAEC
"to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community."
NSBE is comprised of more than 270 chapters on college and university campuses, 75 Alumni Extension chapters nationwide and 75 Pre-College chapters. These chapters are geographically divided into six regions.
The National Society of Black Engineers – Charlotte Alumni Extension Chapter(NSBE-CAEC) is a 503(C) (3) non-profit association represented by technical and professional members throughout the Charlotte Metropolitan area. NSBE-CAEC is dedicated to increasing the participation of African-Americans and other underrepresented groups in the fields of engineering and technology from pre-college to professional. NSBE-CAE works to ensure that students and professionals at all levels develop the skills necessary to excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact their communities.
Over the years, NSBE has grown into an international network of chapters (pre-college, collegiate, and professional) that are coordinated through six regional zones and governed by a National Executive Board. A professional staff provides program and administrative to all six regions.
NSBE had its genesis in 1975 at national conference comprised of African-American engineering students throughout North America who wanted to promote the recruitment, retention and successful graduation of blacks in engineering. They recognized then, as we still do today, that there are barriers to minority participation and success in the engineering fields. Without strident, proactive and unified efforts, these barriers cannot be overcome. NSBE works in a myriad of ways to that these efforts are carried out.
