About Sigma Phi Delta

Sigma Phi Delta is a social fraternity of engineers focused on improving the experiences of its members in academics, the engineering profession, and everyday life. Sig Phi men share the same ideals of camaraderie, team work, and leadership that all Engineers must pursue to excel in their career, and these shared values result in a passion for Brotherhood unseen in other Engineering organizations.

Sigma Phi Delta is unique because it receives the benefits of both a social and professional fraternity. In addition to participating in various philanthropic and service events, SPD gives back through it’s own fundraisers towards the local Engineers Without Borders chapter. We also host social events and mixers with sororities and organizations, and value the close relationship we have with our sister sorority, Alpha Omega Epsilon, with whom we cooperate on a regular basis.

To truely get the most out of one’s time at Virginia Tech, he should open himself to every opportunity available, and SPD exclusively opens doors for its members through professional events such as engineering info sessions, lunches with professors, tours of local engineering buildings and projects, and employer networking nights. With over 50 VT alumni employed in various engineering careers across the nation, as well as thousands from other chapters, stepping beyond the veil of graduation isn’t so daunting with the letters SPD emblazoned on your heart.
