The Professional Executive Board of the National Society Of Black Engineers understands that having a technical career today is not easy. As technical professionals we are constantly challenged when striving to achieve our career dreams due to shifts in the economy, the fact that many companies are in a continual state if reorganizing and ever present standard practice for many companies to import talent from overseas.

The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) program is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees. Our PCI program provides activities to help students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork.
