Located in Troy, NY, the NSBE/SHPE Career Fair has successfully hosted over 200 companies and has provided an atmosphere for career development for more than 4,000 Rensselaer students in attendance each year. This year we expect to do no less.
The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is to "increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers to excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community." NSBE is the largest student run organization in the nation with over 30,000 members. NSBE is now comprised of more than 270 chapters on college and university campuses, 75 Alumni Extension chapters and 75 Pre-Collegiate chapters nationwide.
The mission of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is to "change lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development." Networking was the key basis for the newly founded organization, and immediately 2 student chapters were created. From these two student chapters SHPE has grown to be the largest and fastest growing Latino technical organization with more than 109 student chapters and 31 professional chapters in over 110 cities across the nation and even has a chapter overseas.
