Welcome to National Society of Black Engineers

From the President

Welcome to the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) University of Maine Chapter!! As the current president of this organization I thank you for your interest in our expanding chapter here at the University. NSBE serves to assist students in their path towards a rewarding career. Through our many events, programs, and alumni networking NSBE remains dedicated to developing the students of today for their bright futureĀ tomorrow. Originally from Nigeria, I was born in New York and having lived across the United States with different cultures I was nervous about finally going to college in Maine. Meeting current NSBE members really gave me a chance to develop my professional network and put me on the right path for success. At NSBE I felt a connection to the members knowing we were chasing the same goal.
Our doors our open to you so feel free to stop by our meetings to know more about us. Looking forward to meeting you!
Yours Sincerely,
Ogechi Ogoke
NSBE President
