Empowering Excellence: Oluwatumininu Adeeko's NSBE Journey


Oluwatumininu Adeeko, a doctorate student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, received a $1000 BCA/Affiliate/Fellows (Affiliate) Scholarship from the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and a travel allowance to receive the award in person. She was recognized at NSBE 50: Engineering CommUNITY- the 50th National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is one of the largest student-governed organizations in the United States. Founded in 1975, NSBE supports and promotes the aspirations of collegiate and pre-collegiate students and technical professionals in engineering and technology. With more than 600 chapters and more than 24,000 active members in the U.S. and abroad, NSBE pursues its mission of “increasing the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.”

In Adeeko's words," I am extremely grateful to NSBE for this recognition and their unwavering support ever since my undergraduate degree, and even now as a graduate student. I highly recommend young engineers join their local NSBE Chapters because the programming, financial support, and engineering community they provide on a regional and national scale greatly propels its members to success."
