About OXE

Omega Chi Epsilon is the National Honor Society for Chemical Engineering. OXE has five objectives: Recognition, Investigation, Service, and Comradeship, all bound by Professionalism. Our motto, Ode Chrototos Eggegramai, means In this Society, professionalism is engraved in our minds.

Omega Chi Epsilon was founded at the University of Illinois in 1931, with the purpose of recognizing junior and senior students who displayed academic excellence and leadership in Chemical Engineering. Since then, OXE has grown to include over 20,000 men and women from 67 chapters.

The Beta Omega chapter at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was chartered in 2003. Since then, the chapter has been involved in community service activities, advised students with class registration, and provided a back test archive.

For those interested, our charter and bylaws are available:
