The Pi Tau Sigma National Convention is an annual event where PTS chapters from across the nation, and occasionally from outside the nation, meet to discuss national agenda items as well as update the national board on the status of their chapter. In addition to the convention, chapters often get to tour the hosting chapter’s school as well as hear corporate speakers discuss their experiences.

On February 11th-13th our very own UIC Alpha Sigma chapter of PTS hosted the 90th National Convention. The convention was an immense success with sponsorship from ITW, Caterpillar, GE, Schlumberger, Boeing, ITT, and Navistar. Attendance was above 225 with students and advisors attending events. Convention events included corporate presentations, UIC lab tours, a career fair, and a social event. Many of the attending members commented that the labs tours were very interesting and that the career fair was successful.

Over all the 2011 Pi Tau Sigma National Convention showed attending schools that UIC is an excellent engineering and research school located in a great city. UIC Pi Tau Sigma would like to thank the National board, all who attended, and those who volunteered their time to make the event successful.
