NSBE National Convention: Sun Devils Building the Way to Boston
A big thanks to all of our supporters who made this campaign a success- and our trip to the NSBE National Convention possible! Though the campaign is complete, you can still support ASU NSBE here: www.asufoundation.org/NSBE
The field of engineering has become very competitive. It is pertinent as aspiring engineers to build our skills and further differentiate ourselves from the crowd. As members of ASU National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) one way we are able to do this is by attending the NSBE National Convention. This year's convention's theme is "engineering a cultural change".
NSBE National Convention
The NSBE National Convention is first and foremost a professional development opportunity. It also allows access to potential internships & jobs that offer industry experience. This hands on experience is crucial when starting a career in engineering after graduation.
Some highlights of the last convention include:
- The Donna O Johnson Guaranteed 4.0 Plan Seminar- a recurring workshop at the convention that demonstrates that with enough hard work and the right steps, anything is achievable.
- Social change workshops, which allowed attendees to learn about and discuss different social changes & issues within the workplace. It is important to not only be technically skilled but also socially aware to be a well-rounded employee.
- Resume workshops
- Opportunities to present research posters
- Professional development, specifically covering things like the transition from student life to being a young professionals
- Intimate networking opportunities
NSBE ASU is one of hundreds of NSBE chapters around the world. Our holistic mission is “to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community”. NSBE ASU fulfills this mission with community service outreach projects, study tables, and corporate opportunity seminars.
In the past year, the members of NSBE ASU have forged an outreach partnership with Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS) where we do fun engineering projects with underprivileged youth to introduce them to STEM. We also partner with individual engineering and technology firms to inform the members about different employment opportunities in their field. We have conducted career fair, resume, and interview prep workshops to help our members excel in those areas. Finally, we also have held social events such as NSBowling to foster a supportive family environment where all of our members feel comfortable reaching out to each other for guidance or help.
Great News! The Ira A Fulton School of Computer Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering has agreed to contribute $2500 to support travel for some of our members! We have have reached out to the other schools of engineering and hope to gain their support as well. We will keep you posted!
