Undergraduate Engineering Diversity Professional Organizations at the Jacobs School Honored

Congratulations to the Jacobs School’s undergraduate chapters of the National Society of Black Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers. This trio of undergraduate engineering diversity professional organizations won a 2009 UC San Diego Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action and Diversity Award.

The program recognizes individuals, departments and organizational units who have made outstanding contributions in support of UC San Diego’s commitment to diversity.

A ceremony will be held on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. at the Price Center West Ballrooms to recognize all of the 2009 Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action and Diversity Awards Recipients.

More info on each of the winning student organizations is below:

UCSD Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers
NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more. NSBE’s mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.

UCSD Chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers
The UCSD SHPE chapter provides a medium in which Hispanic/Latino students studying engineering at the Jacobs School can network with other Hispanic engineers in the area. In addition to networking opportunities, the UCSD SHPE Chapter provides a way for students to receive tips and encouragement to excel academically and professionally, as well as opportunities for students to give back to others through community service and outreach.

UCSD Chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
The Jacobs School of Engineering at UCSD enrolls many of the brightest, hardest-working students in the country. We know the most valuable engineer in the workplace is a well-rounded, resourceful one. The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) plays an important role in the development of such an engineer. We provide many activities and events to aid our members in achieving these goals.
