NSBE MUSE Colloquium

Posted in: Life & Culture

Last week, I attended the MUSE Colloquium hosted by MIT’s NSBE Chapter at the Black Students Union on campus. NSBE is a wonderful organization that promotes academic excellence, professional development, information sharing, and networking for aspiring young Black engineers. Participants at the MUSE Colloquium displayed their summer research from 2010 via PowerPoint presentations. The three best presentations won scholarship money to help support their continued research. 1st Place won $500: 2nd Place won $350: 3rd Place won $150.

Long time MIT Lecturer, Sekazi Mtingwa, kicked off the event by sharing a bit about his research in physics. I made a little video of the event. Here are the highlights. Enjoy!

PS - Please forgive my camera shake. This is my first Iphone video ever. I promise to get a better camera for my future productions. ;-)

My fault Vivek. The video should be public now.

What does the " '" after names mean?

Like '13 and so on.

Great question. The number after the name indicates the year of graduation from MIT. So for instance, Dr. Sekazi Mtingwa graduated from MIT in 1971. He actually received his bachelors from MIT and his PhD from Princeton. Both degrees were in physics.

Refreshing to hear about such programs that help locals in the neighborhood and within the country.
