About Us

Our Mission

To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers and scientist who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.

Our History

Founded in 1970's, NSBE-UCSB is the premier organization for Black students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors at the University of California, Santa Barbara. NSBE-UCSB is a member of the national organization with affiliation to Region Six. Through the support of the national organization, UCSB MESA Program, UCSB Office of Education Partnerships, the UCSB College of Engineering, and corporate sponsorship, NSBE-UCSB upholds our mission statement as well as the national directives.

NSBE’s UCSB chapter not only supports Black students in the STEM fields but promotes STEM to pre-college students.
