About

The Georgia Tech Society of Black Engineers (G.T.S.B.E) was founded in 1976, a year after the National Society of Black Engineers (N.S.B.E) was established.

Since its beginnings, G.T.S.B.E has grown to become one of the largest, well-known, and some might even say revered, chapters within the organization, with membership numbers as high as 250. This chapter has had the privilege of receiving numerous honors and accolades, including both the Regional and National Distinguished Chapter of the Year Award; with the National Distinguished Chapter of the Year Award being the highest honor that can be awarded to a chapter. G.T.S.B.E received these honors in 1999 (National) and 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009 (Regional).

The Georgia Tech Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers continues, even today, to fulfill the need for which it was created. It serves as a professional, social and cultural outlet for the students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, while serving as a voice for the Black population on campus. This chapter’s aim is to uphold the mission of N.S.B.E; to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers, who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
