Phi Sigma Rho is dedicated to expanding the definition of a traditional sorority. We provide a social outlet for technical women who want the benefits of a traditional social sorority, but do not want the excessive time commitment.
The sisters of Phi Sigma Rho understand the time involved with an engineering or technology major. Our sisters strive for academic excellence, but also place emphasis on the need to have fun. Every sister of Phi Sigma Rho wants to encourage our sisters to develop socially as well as academically.
Engineering is a traditionally male field. Phi Sigma Rho offers a close friendship and sisterhood that women in engineering do not always find in their predominately male classes. There is a certain commitment to our sisterhood, but the return is a lifetime of friendship and memories.
"Together we build the future" -National Motto
Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority for women in technical studies serving our sisters and the community by promoting:
High standards of personal integrity, respect, and character
Lifelong bonds of sisterhood
Academic and professional excellence with a social balance
Through shared experiences, common bonds, and recognition of service and achievement.
Our national philanthropies are:

In the past years, we have volunteered for Out of the Darkness suicide prevention walks, Houston SPCA Mutt Strut, and more!
Last year, we volunteered for over 300 hours and raised over $500 for philanthropy.
We've participated in Frontier Fiesta, Intramural Sports, Homecoming, IEEE Chili Cookoff, BOS Party on campus, as well as regularly attending tailgates and supporting our brother fraternity, Triangle!
Alumnae of the chapter go on to work for different companies such as Schlumberger, Dow Chemical, Oxy Chemical, Halliburton, GE, and Exxon Mobile.
Active sisters have received internships with companies such as Nabors, Kiewit, NASA, Technip, and some sisters have served as TAs for engineering classes as well.
National Conventions are held every two years and include leadership training and workshops.
