The Florida Alpha Chapter
at The University of Florida
CLICK HERE to view promotional video.
Tau Beta Pi is the oldest and most prestigious engineering honor society. The Florida Alpha Chapter was founded in 1961 and, out of 246 collegiate chapters, is one of the nation's most active. We have been named the Most Outstanding Chapter eight times.
Our purpose is to recognize exceptional engineering students, encourage young students to pursue engineering, and serve our local community. To be eligible for membership, juniors must be in the top eighth of their class, and seniors and graduate students must be in the top fifth of their class; all candidates must demonstrate exemplary character. We have two major programs to encourage young students to pursue engineering degrees: GatorTRAX and The TEE Program (tutoring). You can learn more about service opportunities by visiting our calendar.
The office hour page
now has a different format. The new format includes a Google calendar that all of the officers are able to edit. There will be no more announcements here for office hour changes. Officers are supposed to update the calendar withing 24 hours of a schedule change, but you should make sure to check the calendar before coming to the office in case of any sudden changes.
