Tau Beta Pi
Tau Beta Pi, founded in 1885, is the oldest of the engineering honor societies and the second oldest Greek letter honor society.
Tau Beta Pi's mission is to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their alma mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as undergraduates in the field of engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in the engineering colleges.
Chapter California Alpha Epsilon: Eligibility
USD's chapter of Tau Beta Pi, California Alpha Epsilon was installed on February 25, 2012. Undergraduates at USD in all engineering majors are academically eligible for selection as members if they are in the upper one-eighth of juniors or the upper one-fifth of seniors in engineering.
