Pi Tau Sigma
Pi Tau Sigma is the International Mechanical Engineering Honor Society. Members are chosen on a basis of sound engineering ability, scholarship (upper 35%), personality, and probable future success in their chosen field of Mechanical Engineering. There are three grades of membership: Honorary, Graduate, and Active. Honorary members are technical graduates actively engaged in engineering work; or members of mechanical engineering faculties. Graduate membership is conferred upon persons who would have been eligible had Pi Tau Sigma been established earlier in schools not having chapters, or upon those continuing graduate study. Active members are selected from the junior and senior classes at schools whose mechanical engineering curricula are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Faculty Advisor: Roy Koomullil, Ph.D.
