Tau Beta Pi

November 2, 2011 —

The Wyoming Alpha chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society was recently awarded a $500 scholarship award for three years of outstanding service during 2008-11. The award, according to the Tau Beta Pi Association, was “made under the Tau Beta Pi Chapter Performance Scholarship Program and is intended to promote and support undergraduate education in engineering.” The Wyoming chapter is one of 18 nationally to receive the award.

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. The Tau Beta Pi Scholarship for Wyoming Alpha is one of only 19 awards given nationally.

Steven F. Barrett, Associate Dean of Academic Programs and Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the advisor of the UW’s Tau Beta Pi Chapter. “It is a great honor to work with these talented and highly creative young engineers,” says Barrett.
