NSBE Professional Membership is open to any individual who has received a degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) discipline.


If you are a professional, but did not receive a degree in any of the STEM fields, you are still eligible for membership as a NSBE Professional Affiliate member.


Advisors of Collegiate or NSBE Jr. chapters who want to join NSBE should join as Professional or Professional Affiliate members, depending on background. It is not mandatory for chapter advisors to register as Professionals.
