Twenty-three GT-AE students were inducted into Sigma Gamma Tau, the honor society for aerospace engineering, during ceremonies held at the Georgia Tech Hotel, Nov. 5.
The induction brings to 65 the number of SGT members in the GT-AE chapter, said Chapter President Michael Fifield.
To qualify for induction, sophomores must be academically ranked at the top of their class (top 20 percent if sophomores, top 25 percent if juniors and seniors).
But academic prowess is only half the story, Fifield said. The GT Chapter of SGT is actively involved in improving their community through service.
"We have about a dozen members who have volunteered to tutor other students in aerospace engineering disciplines," he said.
"Now that we're getting into finals season, we are hoping that more students will take us up on the offer. We are flexible and we can go wherever the need is. We want to help out."
Students who are interested in getting free tutoring help from a SGT member should fill out a confidential form, located here.
According to SGT faculty advisor Lakshmi Sankar, GT-AE has one of the largest chapters of the honor society. The numbers don't tell the whole story, however.
"With the caliber of students who are coming to our School and earning a place in SGT, we can look forward to a very bright future for aerospace engineering," he said.
