Tau Beta Pi is the only national engineering honor society that represents the entire engineering profession. It recognizes junior and senior engineering students who are in the top 1/8 and 1/5 of their class, respectively. Members in this prestigious organization are eligible for numerous scholarships and fellowships, and many have become distinguished members of society and the profession.
