CCNY Black Engineers Sweep Awards at NSBE Regionals

The City College of New York’s student chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers took first place in three categories in addition to scooping the best “Trailblazer Chapter Award” at the NSBE Region 1 conference in Hauppauge, N.Y.

  • Chiziterem Uwaga (senior, mechanical engineering), Individual Challenge Question with his presentation on tackling harmful pathogens;
  • Rajiv Wallace (senior, chemistry), in the Technical Research Exhibition;
  • “Team Parchment Protectors” comprising Oren Previl (junior, civil engineering), O’Neil Bruno (senior environmental engineering) and Andre Kerr (junior, mechanical engineering) in the Structural Design Team competition.

In addition, Kirk Shillingford, an environmental engineering senior, and the City College NASBE chapter president, was third in the Individual Challenge. His topic was energy storage and space propulsion.

Andre Smithson, a chemistry senior, was second in the Technical Research Exhibition. He was also, along with Oksana James (junior, environmental engineering) and Shadeyrack Quiroz (junior, mechanical engineering), on the CCNY team that placed third in the Structural Design event.

The “Trailblazer Award” was for the chapter that best exemplifies NSBE’s mission which is to academic excellence, professional development and positively impacting the community.

NSBE has 29, 900 members. Region 1 serves the northeastern United States, eastern Canada and the countries of West Africa.

What is mechanical engineering?

Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the application of principles of physics for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines.
It requires a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and energy. Mechanical engineers use the core principles as well as other knowledge in the field to design and analyze motor vehicles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, watercraft, manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machine…
