The purpose of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) at Atlanta Technical College is to link students into a large collegiate and professional network, thus exposing them to numerous internship, career, social, and networking opportunities. The National Society of Black Engineers, as a national student and professional-based organization, dedicates itself to the development of intensive programs for increasing Black and other ethnic minority participation in the fields of engineering and engineering technology. These programs will be initiated both within and outside the university community and will serve to strengthen relations between the professional industry and the black community. Members of this organization are encouraged to join and participate in their individual professional societies. This organization will endeavor to provide general counseling to all members.
