The 2014 National National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Conference took place March 27-28 in Nashville Tennessee, and the NYIT Manhattan chapter of the organization was there in full force to network with industry prodessionals, present their hard work, and learn from NSBE members and affiliates. While in attendance, NSBE members saw cutting-edge exos, attended development workshops, competed in engineering challenges, and participated in a two-day career and graduate school fair with recruiters from over 300 companies and universites, including MIT, NASA, Ford, Boeing, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, and Goldman Sachs.
The highlight of the event for NYIT students was the election of Omari Adams, President of the Manhattan chapter, to the position of Metro - Long Island Zone Chairperson, a position that oversees over 12 different NSBE chapters in New York. In addition to Omari's promotion, NSBE at NYIT has also been elected to host the next NSBE Metro-LI Zone Conference in the fall, which will convene Engineers and STEM students from schools around the New York metropolitan area for workshops, lectures and a career fair at the Manhattan campus.
NSBE Manhattan attendees at the National Convention included Joanna De Los Santos, Jamiah Braithwaite, Serge Jerome, Princessa Dominique, Diamond Nanton, Vanessa Newman, Tyler Duncan, Raffael Rabelo, and Professor Winston Smith.
