Alpha Beta Kappa

"The premier national honor society for America's private postsecondary schools, institutes, colleges, universities, and distance learning institutions - serving many institutions for the past 40 years. Alpha Beta Kappa places Chapters in institutions which have demonstrated high standards over a period of many years in the education and training of women and men in the numerous fields, trades and occupations essential to modern society. There was no national society for private proprietary and nonprofit postsecondary institutions until the National Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society was officially established."

 

Alpha Sigma Mu

 

"The academic honor society dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the materials engineering field. Members consist of students, alumni, and other professionals who have demonstrated exceptional academic and professional accomplishments. Student members are selected on the basis of scholastic standing, character and leadership. Through Chapter involvement, students develop lifelong skills that prepare them for leadership positions in industry and academia. Members are much better prepared for the post-college world and are valuable and attractive to employers."

 

Alpha Eta Mu Beta

"To recognize those current or future Biomedical Engineers who have manifested a deep interest and marked ability in their chosen professional path, and who have conferred honor on the Biomedical Engineering Department at University of Connecticut by distinguished scholarship, activities, leadership and exemplary character."

 

Chi Epsilon

"Organized to recognize the characteristics of the individual civil engineer deemed to be fundamental to the successful pursuit of an engineering career, and to aid in the development of those characteristics in civil engineering students."

 

Eta Kappa Nu

"The International Honor Society for Computer and Electrical Engineers. Outstanding persons are elected to Eta Kappa Nu primarily from the junior and senior classes of accredited undergraduate programs. Eligibility, naturally, must depend on marked ability, as evidenced by scholarship, personal character, useful voluntary services, and distinguished accomplishments, all of which indicate that the candidate will be or is a success in his profession."

 

Omega Chi Epsilon

"The National Honor Society for Chemical Engineering. The Society promotes high scholarship, encourages original investigation in chemical engineering and recognizes the valuable traits of character, integrity and leadership. It serves both undergraduate and graduate students and fosters meaningful student-faculty dialogue."

 

Phi Sigma Rho

"A social sorority for women in engineering and engineering technology.  Through Phi Sigma Rho, our sisters develop the highest standard of personal integrity, strive for academic excellence, and build friendships that will last a lifetime."

 

Tau Beta Pi
(All Engineering)

“Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation’s second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.”

Upsilon Pi Epsilon

"The computing and information disciplines are relatively young. Yet despite their comparative youth, the computing and information disciplines have had an unparalleled effect on almost every aspect of contemporary life. Indeed it is difficult to predict the ultimate place of the computer in our world.  It is the express purpose of Upsilon Pi Epsilon to promote the computing and information disciplines and to encourage their contribution to the enhancement of knowledge."

Pi Tau Sigma

"The aims of the chapter are to promote a closer student-faculty relationship and encourage scholarship in mechanical engineering. Its members are also attempting to become more familiar with outstanding students in the junior classes since it is these prospective members who will be carrying on the traditions of Pi Tau Sigma. Connecticut Pi Psi Chapter rewards scholarship and sponsors lectures by outstanding engineers."
