What is OXE?

The Alpha Rho chapter of Omega Chi Epsilon National Honor Society for Chemical Engineering is devoted to recognizing exemplary undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Omega Chi Epsilon was founded in 1931 to promote high scholarship, encourage original investigation in chemical engineering, and to recognize the valuable traits of character, integrity, and leadership. Omega Chi Epsilon has five key objectives:

1. Recognition: to recognize excellence in chemical and biomolecular engineering
2. Investigation: to promote original investigation and innovation in chemical engineering
3. Service: to provide service to the chemical engineering department or school and its student body
4. Comradeship: to promote comradeship among chemical engineers
5. Professionalism: to promote honesty, integrity and social responsibility: the hallmarks of professional ethics

OXE is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. The Society also has many common goals with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the American Society for Engineering Education. Currently, Omega Chi Epsilon has over 60 active university chapters and total membership of nearly 20,000 men and women. While the chapters are primarily composed of junior and senior students, it is also open to graduate students and faculty. In recent years, 2 to 4 new chapters have been chartered each year.

Some of the things that we do are:
Organize and sponsor student-faculty activities
Assist with guest lecture seminars
Provide tutorial services to chemical engineering students
