The Engineering Honor Society

Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, was founded in 1885 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.

Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation’s second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to recognize students of distinguished scholarship and exemplary character. There are now collegiate chapters at 238 US colleges and universities, active alumnus chapters in 16 districts across the country, and a total initiated membership of 531,998.

The New Jersey Delta Chapter at Princeton University was founded in 1972, and has since initiated over 1,400 members. Tau Beta Pi members are an integral part of the engineering community at Princeton and volunteer their time each semester in service of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and their fellow students.
