Tau Beta Pi is the largest and oldest engineering honor society in the United States. It boasts a membership that includes former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and coming soon, President David Skorton, according to TBP president Dennis Chua ’14.

Tau Beta Pi is made up of junior and senior engineers in the top of their class, with an average GPA around 3.8, according to Chua, himself a chemical engineer. The group currently has around 75 active members, and Chua said after spring initiation he hopes to have a group of over 100.

“It is a group of very intelligent people,” Chua said.
