Programs & Events
To address the stress of exams and provide support and encouragement, we will provide a way in which members can take a break and relax midway through the semester. With this event, students can relax through games, wellness activities, and prize giveaways before returning to their studies. These breaks will relieve students in times of high stress and encourage them to keep pushing forward, an action set in place to achieve our goal of retaining students within the field of engineering..

Career Fair Prep and Resume Workshop
This meeting will be hosted before career fairs start to serve as preparation. During this meeting we will detail what is important to do before, what to bring, and ideas to keep in mind once you get to the career fair. During this meeting we will also be providing feedback on resumes and providing tips when drafting and presenting resumes.
Pre-College initiative Panel
We will visit local school science fairs and classrooms to speak with students about Engineering and Facilitate activities that will engage and excite students in STEM careers. Our goal is to inspire K–12 students to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by providing them with consistent early exposure to technical competitions, academic development and leadership training.
6 Events throughout the year
We will hold study sessions throughout the school year giving students the opportunity to have a quiet space to prioritize their workload. We will provide refreshments to serve as a boost in preparation for upcoming exams. Study tables will also serve as an opportunity to get help from peers and provide a sense of comfort, understanding and belonging
7 Events throughout the year
The first conversation with a stranger is the hardest to navigate. This event will serve to aid students in building a network on campus within our general body. It is the hope that this event will help students get comfortable with approaching others and starting conversations. During this meeting we will have chairs/ desks across from each other and have students rotate around the room where they will have 60 second one-on-one conversations to get to know each other. They will have cards with a list of questions to aid in the conversation.
Ready for Finals
Finals time is a very hectic time for all students. During the months of December and April, special meetings are held that present strategies for studying, and information on time management. In addition, students are divided into small subject-based groups to assist one another in various technical subjects.

NSBE Corporate Alumni Panel
It isn’t until you have your first internship or start your career as a professional after graduation do you grasp the transition to corporate life. During this event we want to provide students with the opportunity to learn about this transition and what the workforce looks like. We want to prepare them for life after graduation. We will be bringing back alumni who have graduated from MSU and are now serving in corporate positions and picking their brains about what is to come and how best to prepare.
Corporate Partner Panel
The Corporate Partner Panel is designed to bring engineering organizations on campus together in order to create networking opportunities for our partners and the members of these organizations. Prior to the panel, students and professionals will have an hour to network with each other. During the panel, refreshments will be provided for the participants and attendees. The panel will enable chapter members to engage further with the relationship we have with our partners and classmates as well as give our partners an opportunity to build a stronger connection with the talent on campus. Partners who are gold tiered and above will receive an invite to join the festivities.
NSBE Members are invited to engage in presentations from our Corporate Partners. Representatives from each company are invited to hold a 60-minute informational, provide resume critiques, share employment opportunities, facilitate mock-interviews, and offer other important tips to members. These meetings also generate an excellent pool of talent that our corporate partners can pick from for competitive scholarships, internships, co-ops and full-time employment.
15 events per year
STEM Day has been a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the community as well as partner with not only registered student organizations on MSU’s campus but also local K-12 schools. This program opens the minds of students to the STEM opportunities that are available to them. With the help of partners like you, NSBE has been able to consistently participate in STEM Day programs with various organizations and schools.

50th Annual National Convention
We are excited to attend the second in-person convention since the pandemic. NSBE members will have the opportunity to network with other students and professional chapters from across the globe.

After taking advantage of the graduate school and career fairs, intensive workshops, and peer interactions, students are refreshed with an uplifted attitude and rekindled fervor for excellence and leadership. This event is for the entire chapter and the greatest expense will be the cost of travel.
