Several Warriors shine at NSBE Fall Regional ConferenceDecember 1, 2023
Eighteen members of Indiana Tech’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) earned invaluable professional experience during the NSBE Fall Regional Conference, which was held in Chicago Nov. 17 through 19.
These regional conferences provide NSBE members with the opportunity to source internships and full-time positions in a career fair and convention setting. In addition, participants are able to attend leadership development workshops and showcase their talents in competitive ways.
Indiana Tech’s NSBE debate team, comprised of Brianna Triplett, A’Niyah Johnson and Lauryn Terry, won the regional debate competition by defeating the University of Michigan. The subject of this debate was the use of generative AI. The victory allows the team to compete in at NSBE’s national conference, which will take place in March in Atlanta.
Olaide Olapade also earned a regional championship for her scholarly poster presentation in the Technical Research Exhibition. She will also compete at the national conference.
The Indiana Tech chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) was chartered in 2005. Since then, the organization has had a steady presence on campus in order to fulfill the NSBE mission statement, which is “to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”
