Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, founded in 1886 at Cornell University, is the honor society of scientists and engineers that recognizes scientific achievement. Its mission is to enhance the health of the research enterprise, foster integrity in science and engineering, and promote the public’s understanding of science for the purpose of improving the human condition.
The Georgia Tech Sigma Xi Club was founded in 1946 and installed as a chapter of the national Society of the Sigma Xi in 1953. The Georgia Tech Chapter of Sigma Xi currently has over 250 members.
Our major activities include hosting the Monie A. Ferst Award Symposium in the Fall in honor of the Monie A. Ferst Award winner and hosting the Sigma Xi Spring Awards Banquet where we honor the Georgia Tech Sigma Xi Student and Faculty Research Award winners.
