NSBE 43rd Annual Convention

March 29, 2017 - April 2, 2017

NSBE 2025’s Vision is a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. This vision is vindicated by NSBE’s goal of graduating 10,000 Black engineers a year by 2025. But how do we get from now to our goal in 2025 you may ask? We do that by “Engineering Your Foundation” at NSBE’s 43rd Annual Convention, at the Kansas City Convention Center, in Kansas City, MO.

NSBE’s 43rd Annual Convention looks to be your catalyst for a strong and solid foundation to be built for our communities of color that focuses on how engineers are created and retained as we strive to move the needle forward to NSBE 2025.
