The Theta Tau Difference
The fellowship, academic support and personal growth our Brothers find in Theta Tau makes all the difference in their personal and professional success. We call that undisputed value The Theta Tau Difference. In addition to the desirable attributes of a general fraternity, Theta Tau offers a common bond: an interest in the pursuance of engineering in its various branches. It is more than just a club to which one belongs for a couple of years while a student. Membership in Theta Tau is for life. Not only is Theta Tau interested in developing academic skills, but it is also deeply involved in developing character. Character includes those qualities that make an individual distinguishable as a professional. Engineering is advancing so fast that technical knowledge is becoming obsolete at an ever‐increasing rate, but professional character remains regardless of an engineer’s career path.
Theta Tau’s chapters provide a program of activities to meet the social and professional needs of its members. A professional development program generally includes plant tours, speakers, workshops, and interaction with alumni. Social events often include picnics, parties, trips to other chapters, and intramural sports. Chapters have community service projects through which the college or needy residents benefit from the philanthropic and volunteer efforts of members. Most of all, Theta Tau encourages personal and professional growth.
Theta Tau differs from other organizations to which our members often belong. The Professional Fraternity combines the desirable features of general fraternities,technical societies, and honor societies to prepare its student members for the engineering profession and the lifetime ahead.
