Kansas State University

National Society of Black Engineers


In 2016 our student chapter was named National Small Chapter of the Year and Regional Small Chapter of the Year at NSBE's annual convention in Boston, Massachusetts.

Chapter History

Realizing a need for a professionally oriented organization for Black students on the Kansas State University Campus, a group of black engineering students formed the KSU Chapter in the Mid 1980's. Today our chapter has made many accomplishments and achievements through the years. In 1989, our chapter attended the Region V conference in Kansas City. In 1993, the chapter was recognized by the KSU Engineering Student Council as an outstanding student organization. In 2010, our chapter sent 7 members to the Region V Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In 2008, KSU Chapter President Christopher Berry created Engineering A Dream. This is a program for middle school students who may come to campus to do engineering and science projects for a whole Saturday. One of the main goals of the program is to get younger students exposed to majoring in engineering. EaD is run once a year and has been a success since its creation. NSBE runs this program with help from KSU SHPE and KSU AISES.
