History

The National Society of Black Engineers began at Santa Clara University in 1992. With the help of John Mutungi, the first SCU NSBE president, he managed to set the foundation, in order for the society to take root. When the next year came, David Amuda took the club one step further. The club was now a school sponsered club and three members including himself, attended the National NSBE Convention. After that year past, Marvin Williams, a Mechanical Engineer like all of his predecesors, took the helm as co-chair along with other co-chair Katerina Teaiwa. The club managed to pull off a couple of fundraisers and also managed to send four members to the National Convention for that year. Those members who attended were David Amuda, Katerina Teaiwa, Kimberly Myles and Damon Jones. After a suprising experience at the national conference, Kimberly, Katerina, and Damon guided the club for the year to come. These three individuals managed to accomplish many fundraisers, increase membership and send nine people to the national NSBE conference. Now once again NSBE is ready to take on the struggles of education and job placement with a solid foundation and NSBE brother and sisterhood.
