Be 1 of 10,000

The U.S. needs more Black Engineers to continue our nation’s progress through STEM: science, technology, engineering and math. To help solve this problem, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is calling on 7th graders across the country to buckle down academically, set their sights on college and commit to graduating with an engineering degree in 2025!

NSBE 2025 Campaign

The percentage of black graduates among engineering degree candidates has been declining in the United States for more than a decade and was only 3.5 percent in 2014 — well below the 13.2 percent that represents parity for African Americans. As part of its new 10-year Strategic Plan, NSBE has set a primary goal of increasing the annual number of African-American engineering bachelor’s degree recipients from 3,620 to 10,000 by 2025.
