NSBE Chapter wins

UM’s National Society of Black Engineers(NSBE)-has been recognized as the 2013  National Small Chapter of the Year, highlighting the  exceptional leadership and  academic capabilities of its members in Region III(Southeast). As their Twitter page declares “ NSBE at the University of Miami may be small in number, but strong in character, intelligence, and dedication.” According to outgoing chapter President, Bianca Williams(IE) “As a Chapter, we recognized  that we could supplement  the programs on campus to increase minority engineering exposure and we made it happen.” Current chapter President, Amanda Adams(IE)  believes that “ the determination and  focus of our chapter under pressure  stood out to the national committee when they bestowed this prestigious award on us.” The nominations were based on the chapters’ execution of programs in academic excellence, community outreach,  professional development  and membership retention. General Motors, in recognition of the Chapters’ awards, invited the various NSBE officers, including Amada and Bianca, to join the “Chevy Cruz Tour,” which invited these officers to drive the Cruz from Ohio to Michigan and visit engineering plants and factories en route. Both Amanda and Bianca agreed the experience was “extremely valuable. We not only gained insights into the manufacturing aspects of engineering, but also national recognition for our hard working Chapter.”
