UT’s National Society of Black Engineers recently took part in the 49th national convention.
UT’s NSBE chapter won the academic tech bowl regional for the fourth straight year and will compete at the national convention.
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) recognized Travis Griffin, director of the college’s Engineering Diversity Programs, as its Collegiate Chapter Advocate of the Year in the recent 25th Annual NSBE Golden Torch Awards.
Bredesen Center doctoral student Kendra Allen won two National Society of Black Engineers Golden Torch awards for her work.
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) chapter at UT won their third consecutive Academic Tech Bowl in the fall of 2021.
“Our team kept its composure and made an amazing comeback at the end,” said Shannon Sharp, also a sophomore in mechanical engineering. “When they announced that we had won, we went crazy and celebrated ecstatically for UT’s win.”
“Engineering is a wonderful profession, allowing its practitioners to have tremendous impact on our families, communities, state, nation and global society,” said Dean. “This also places a significant dependency on engineers to get it right. This is a burden engineers must embrace, be humbled by their responsibilities and potential, and enjoy every minute.”
Many Engineering Vol student organizations—around two-thirds of them—are headed by women who bring dynamic, fresh approaches to their leadership roles. They gain experience in collaboration, strengthen their Volunteer community, and, through outreach, instill younger women with confidence toward STEM careers.
Students from the UT chapter of the National Society of Black Engineering won the Academic Technology Bowl at their regional conference.
Engineering Vols saw success at the NSBE regional conference, at iGEM, and with their academic studies.
