The Texas Zone is the largest zone within Region 5 of the National Society of Black Engineers. Better known as the “Big Tex Zone”, we consist of 27 NSBE Jr, Collegiate, and Professional chapters. The Big Tex Zone played a historic role with NSBE being incorporated in Austin, Texas in 1976. There is a unique passion and fire about us that our members hold near and dear in our hearts. We have a tradition of being the most enthusiastic zone while fulfilling the NSBE Mission. Most of all, our love for NSBE drives us to form families, increase membership, retain members and evolve into leaders! BIG-TEX!!!
