SiGMA is the graduate student organization for the Cornell Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department.  If you are a grad student in MAE, you are a member of SiGMA!

Professional Development

Events such as the Sibley Graduate Research Symposium and the SiGMA seminar series are oriented towards the professional development of graduate students of MAE.



SiGMA organizes outreach events to give back to the local and NY state community such as the Big Red Barn Kids science day, expanding your horizons at Cornell, and Lego robotics outreach.



SiGMA hosts a number of social events for students to get together and relax outside of the lab! Events throughout the year include ice cream socials, field days, game nights, holiday-themed events.


Get Involved!

If you want to help but you aren’t sure in how much time you can commit or you aren’t sure what you are interested in, feel free to attend any of the SiGMA committee meetings.  Meeting times are listed on the Events page.
