The first constitution was submitted to UCF Student Government Association in 1998, however according to the national records we were chartered in 2002. NSBE UCF is recognized nationally as a large chapter, meaning we have over 75 members, undergraduates and graduates combined. 


The Executive board is here to serve as a representative for the organization, both nationally and in the UCF community, but all members have a voice. The Executive board is tasked with the duty of upholding and educating members of the National and Chapter Mission. Year to year the plan may change, but the goal is always the same.

National History

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), with more than 29,900 members, is one of the largest student-governed organizations in the country. Founded in 1975, NSBE now includes more than 394 College, Pre-College, and NSBE Professional chapters in the United States and abroad. NSBE’s mission is "to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community."


The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit association that is owned and managed by its members. The organization is dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals. NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more. NSBE is comprised of 242 collegiate, 70 professional and 82 pre-college active chapters nationwide and overseas. These chapters are geographically divided into six regions. NSBE is governed by an executive board of college students and engineering professionals and is operated by a professional staff in our World Headquarters located in Alexandria, VA. NSBE has accomplished more for Black engineering students than any other organization in the world. The same light that flows from the NSBE torch to students and professionals in the United States is also relevant for NSBE students in Africa, Europe, South America, Asia, Canada, Australia and the Caribbean. It is the goal of the Society to replicate its mission and vision in countries around the world, creating a global network of Black engineers, scientists and technologists.

Our Initiatives

Academic EXcellence


To develop a strategic academic support network for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in engineering and the physical sciences.



To address the academic support needs of NSBE members, chapters and regions through researching, developing and implementing innovative programs, workshops and seminars.



To increase the number of NSBE undergraduate members graduating in the fields of engineering and science; to increase the number of NSBE members seeking and completing graduate degrees in the fields of engineering and science; to increase the number of NSBE members taking advantage of research opportunities.

Pre-College Initiative

The National Society of Black Engineers Pre-College Initiative program will lead the world in enhancing the pre-college students' Academic, Technical, and Leadership skills in order to maximize their success in life. The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, also known as STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12th to attend college and pursue technical degrees. Our PCI program provides activities to help students discover first hand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover all its excitement.

Professional Extension

As the UCF chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, we pride ourselves on being an organization dedicated to providing our members with the tools they need for success. Professional development workshops, resume critiques, and meet and greets with professional engineers in the industry are only a few of the events we provide for our members throughout the year.

Mentorship Program:

NSBE-UCF also provides our members with the opportunity to be a part of our mentorship program. Our program matches students with professionals in the industry who guide and help to prepare our members to become professional engineers themselves.



To stimulate enthusiasm about science, technology, engineering and mathematics  (STEM) within Black communities. To provide introductory training to members of the community in modern technology, software and technical knowledge. To promote STEM education at all levels. Encourage a greater sense of responsibility in the Black community toparticipate in positive improvements to the community that may or may not use STEM.​

TORCH programs are divided into the following branches:


  • STEM Community Training – Formal classroom style education in STEM fields aimed at both youth and adults

  • Informal Engineering and Science Education - casual outreach activities, targeted at youth, which aim to show how science & engineering can be fun

  • A Walk for Education – A single day outreach activity aimed at encouraging youth to be better prepared for higher educational opportunities in STEM fields, and in general

  • Technical Expertise Services - Using our technical skills to provide a direct service to the community

  • Traditional Community Service Activities - Any other type of community service: food & clothing drives, volunteering at a shelter, etc
