Honors Societies

Alpha Nu Sigma (ANΣ) is the honors branch of the American Nuclear Society. Exceptional students from the University of Michigan’s Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences department are invited to join the society. The top quarter of Juniors and top third of Seniors and Graduate students are eligible for induction each academic year.

Alpha Pi Mu is the only nationally accepted industrial engineering honor society. While academic interests and abilities are required for membership, the society’s overall goals are much broader and are designed to provide an inspiration for young students, to provide a common group on which their outstanding young engineers could exchange ideas, and to provide experiences which could help their future professional development. 

Alpha Sigma Mu is the honorary metallurgical and materials engineering society designed to recognize outstanding students in these programs who attain high rank in scholarship and who possess to a high degree the qualities of exemplary integrity, leadership, and initiative. 

The Beta-Epsilon chapter of Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is composed of the top electrical, computer, and computer science engineers at the University of Michigan. We serve our community by operating the fully student-run dB Cafe, holding community service projects around Ann Arbor, and organizing community events to encourage collaboration among the students and faculty.

The members of Chi Epsilon have continually worked to further the society’s goal of developing civil and environmental engineering students with the attributes necessary for a successful engineering career.

Omega Chi Epsilon (ΩΧΕ) is a nationally recognized honor society for chemical engineers, dedicated to promoting academic excellence, facilitating professional development, serving the community, and establishing camaraderie. 

Pi Tau Sigma (PTS) is the National Mechanical Engineering Honor Society and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. There are chapters at universities in almost every state of the United States. The Pi-Rho chapter was inducted in 1948 and is made up of the top Mechanical Engineers at the University of Michigan. We are active within the Mechanical Engineering community, organizing department activities such as the annual Halloween Bash and Pancake Breakfast as well as professional events such as information sessions with our corporate sponsors.

The Sigma Gamma Tau Society is established to recognize and honor 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 practices and to create a spirit of loyalty and fellowship, particularly among students of Aerospace Engineering.

Tau Beta Pi (TBP) 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. There are now collegiate chapters at 242 US colleges and universities, 39 active alumnus chapters in 16 districts across the country, and more than 554,000 total members.
