Sigma Gamma Tau National Aerospace Engineering Honor Society
Sigma Gamma Tau National Aerospace Engineering Honor Society was founded at Purdue University on February 28, 1953 and recognizes and honors those individuals in the field of Aeronautics and Astronautics who have, through scholarship, integrity, and outstanding achievement, been a credit to their profession. The society seeks to foster a high standard of ethics and professional practice and create a spirit of loyalty and fellowship, particularly among students of Aerospace Engineering.
In the 2005 2006 academic year, we have 59 active members at Purdue University. Our group focuses on the development and improvement of the educational opportunities in Aerospace Engineering at Purdue University. Through academic excellence and leadership in the classroom we have achieved the following:
Maintained and executed 1 on 1 tutor program for those who need help with their studies
Weekly study sessions for sophomore level aerospace engineering classes have been constructed and executed to help those new to the department
Exam review sessions have been organized and executed with teaching assistants and professors for sophomore and junior level aerospace engineering courses
Our future plans include developing and implementing a free breakfast to students studying in the aero student lounge every Friday. This is on schedule to be implemented before the end of first semester, also a canned food drive or volunteer program to help with local charities for the holidays. Later on, this will become a more frequent opportunity, not restricted solely to holidays.
