- Tau Beta Pi is the oldest and most prestigious engineering honor society. The Florida Alpha Chapter was founded in 1961 and, out of 237 collegiate chapters, is one of the nation's most active. We have been named the Most Outstanding Chapter eight times.
- Our purpose is to recognize exceptional engineering students, encourage young students to pursue engineering, and serve our local community. To be eligible for membership, juniors must be in the top eighth of their class, and seniors and graduate students must be in the top fifth of their class; all candidates must demonstrate exemplary character. We have three major programs to encourage young students to pursue engineering degrees: GatorTRAX, SECME, and The TEE Program (tutoring). You can learn more about service opportunities by visiting our calendar.
