Welcome to Tau Beta Pi

Thank you for your interest in Tau Beta Pi. Tau Beta Pi is the nation's largest engineering honor society and the only honor society representing all majors of engineering. We encourage you to browse our site to find out more information about Tau Beta Pi and discover your next steps toward becoming a member. You are also encouraged to attend one of our upcoming events listed at the bottom of this page.

Once a member of Tau Beta Pi, you're a member for life. You don't have to pay a membership fee each year, and if you remain active throughout your SDSU career, you'll be able to graduate with a set of stoles and cords. After you graduate, there are opportunities to continue your involvement both within San Diego and nationwide.

Tau Beta Pi has been a dynamic and integral part of the engineering profession for more than a century. It is committed to the development of engineers of exemplary character so they will be leaders both on their campuses today and in the rapidly changing world of tomorrow. Members of Tau Beta Pi make an impact in all walks of life, not just engineering. The members of our chapter are proud of our active participation within the college and local community.

Noteworthy Upcoming Events

Welcome to 2024!

Welcome to the spring semester! We're excited to be back on campus and hope you'll join us.

Our eligibility list has been posted; you've probably already seen it around campus. You can check your eligibility online here.

Also, since it's "what does my schedule look like today?" season, and mySDSU's timetable view has left us wanting, we made a tool to view your classes in a grid similar to webportal.

Officer Applications for 2024–2025

As the year begins to wind down, it's time to start looking to next year, and that can't happen without officers!

Becoming an officer is a great way to get involved, network, and develop your skills. Officers are crucial to the continued success and growth of our chapter, so if you're looking for a way to give back or create a legacy, this is a great way to do it. Being an officer also gives you the opportunity to show your commitment, leadership, and ability to work in a team; things that may help you in your everyday life, impress your future boss in an interview, or in your future career. No prior experience is necessary and we encourage you to consider it.

You can find out more about the open officer positions; we're also hosting officer information meetings on Tuesday, April 16th at 3pm in Study Room F and Thursday, April 18th at 11am in Study Room C of the Library. If neither of these work for you, let us know and work to accommodate your schedule.

Officer positions are decided on April 27th, directly following our Spring initiation. Some of the positions are elected, and some are appointed by the officers following election. Please complete and submit an officer application and submit it via email by Thursday, April 25th. Your application is a way for us to get to know you and why you're interested in becoming an officer, as well as you to indicate your interest and preference in officer positions.

The application currently has two rows, but there is no limit to the number of positions you can express interest in, just keep adding additional rows. Please submit the application via email.

If you are interested in a position we do not currently list, have any questions about being an officer, or would like to give us your feedback on a new position, we encourage you to reach out to us.
