NSBE Chapter Attends National Convention

NSBE Chapter Attends National ConventionOn March 21-25, Prairie View A&M University’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) joined over 10,000 future engineers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the NSBE’s 44th Annual Convention. The conference took place at the David Lawrence Convention Center where professional and leadership development, technical training, networking and job opportunities were made available. More than 400 companies gave students a chance to learn about the workforce while supporting the development of black employees.

“Many of our 40-plus students who went were interviewed and are now anxiously awaiting the possibility of employment,” said Shield B. Lin, interim dean of PVAMU’s Roy G. Perry College of Engineering. “The Annual Convention was the perfect place to recruit top talent from NSBE’s membership, and it also offered the unique opportunity to engage directly with our national leaders.”
