An Organization With A Purpose
Theta Tau was established at George Mason University during the Fall of 2008. Theta Tau is a National, Professional, Co-Ed, Engineering Fraternity. The purpose of Theta Tau is to develop and maintain a high standard of professional interest among its members, and to unite them in a strong bond of fraternal fellowship. In addition to the desirable attributes of a general fraternity, it offers a common bond: an interest in and pursuance of engineering in its various branches. With the first chapter founded in 1904, we are the largest and oldest engineering fraternity in the nation! Theta Tau is different from other fraternities in that it combines the best attributes of social fraternities, technical societies and honor societies to prepare its members for the engineering profession while getting the most enjoyment and memories out of their college years. The Fraternity helps the member to make the transition from student days to years of professional practice ahead. From a closely-knit chapter to a vast body of alumni ready and willing to advise and assist him. There are many alumni in places of high responsibility throughout the world, all wearing the same badge and speaking the language of the engineering profession.
