Welcome to the Florida Tech SPS OrgSync page!
Society of Physics Students (SPS)
The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students. The SPS exists to help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community. Course work develops only one range of skills. Other skills needed to flourish professionally include effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, establishing a personal network of contacts, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and journals, and outreach services to the campus and local communities.
Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, the SPS offers the opportunity for these important enrichments to the student's experience.
Membership at Florida Tech's SPS Chapter is open to anyone interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members can include majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering, biology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.
