Tau Beta Pi is the Engineering National Honor Society. The organization seeks to recognize those engineers who have shown exemplary academic devotion and outstanding character in their undergraduate studies, or as alumni in the field of engineering. Membership is a mark of distinguished honor within the engineering community.
