Founded on November 13, 1983 at Marquette University, Alpha Omega Epsilon (AΩE) is known as a professional and social engineering and technical sciences sorority. The women studying engineering at Marquette University began this organization in hopes of increasing the number and furthering the advancements of women in engineering. As a sorority, AΩE promotes the development of integrity, professionalism, leadership, and knowledge in the engineering field. The members of AΩE are offered many opportunities for professional development and exposure to the engineering and technical sciences work field. Lifelong friendships are fostered within the members of AΩE while participating in a variety of social, philanthropic, and professional events.
The Sigma Chapter of AΩE, here at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was founded on February 4, 2006. Beginning with thirty founders, the number of members has been growing every year. Along with maintaining the ideals and objectives of AΩE, the Georgia Tech chapter serves as a support system for women pursuing careers in engineering and technical sciences.
