NSBE's mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. We seek to do this by: (1) stimulating and develop cadet interest in the various engineering disciplines; (2) striving to increase the number of minority cadets studying engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; (3) encouraging members to seek advanced degrees in engineering or related fields and to obtain professional engineering registrations; (4) encouraging and advise minority youth in their pursuit of an engineering career; (5) promoting public awareness of engineering and the opportunities for Blacks and other minorities in that profession; and (6) function as a representative body on issues and developments that affect the careers of Black Engineers.

Why NSBE at West Point?

Our cadet club strives to raise the interest of the West Point community in various aspects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and serves as a resource for cadets from historically underrepresented groups. As an active chapter since 1997 with a strong membership of over 90 cadets, our chapter’s mission is to increase the numbers of cadets from historically underrepresented groups who excel academically, impact the community and are strong leaders of character. Our chapter has three main initiatives: Excel Scholars & Tutoring Program, Engineering Expo Community Outreach, and Forum for Professional and Social Networking.
