Theta Tau

Our Story

We are the first & foremost professional engineering fraternity at Cornell University.

Line Created with Sketch.

Theta Tau is the oldest, largest, and foremost Fraternity for Engineers. Since its founding at the University of Minnesota in 1904, over 30,000 have been initiated over the years. With emphasis on quality and a strong fraternal bond, the Fraternity has chapters in only ABET accredited schools, and limits to seventy the number of student members in any one of its chapters across the nation.

The purpose of Theta Tau is to develop and maintain a high standard of professional interest among its members, and to unite them in a strong bond of fraternal fellowship. The members of Theta Tau are: Honest and Ethical, Dependable and Trustworthy, Respectful, Generous, and Proud of our Community of Engineers.

What we do

Theta Tau provides the opportunity to unite brotherhood and philanthropy for its members. Upon joining, I was excited to learn that it has such an established philanthropy pillar. Theta Tau strives to be more than just academically driven. It also focuses on reaching out into the greater community. Participating in our philanthropy events has given me an outlet to volunteer while allowing me to bond with my brothers.

Our past projects have been great experiences and I hope to build off of them to help make a difference while having fun. This semester we hope to partner up with Y.O.U.R.S. to bring opportunities for children living in mobile home parks near Ithaca. We will also be participating in events to reach out Cornell students and the greater Ithaca area. These events will be exciting and help Theta Tau fulfill its important philanthropy pillar.

Philanthropy Chair

Within Theta Tau, the bonds we make are integral to shaping both our Cornell experiences and our future professional careers. Michael and Justin, the social chairs, are in charge of planning and organizing events where brothers fortify fulfilling friendships and make meaningful memories. The brothers of Theta Tau have enjoyed formal events scheduled at the end of every semester, date nights, pledge class bonding events, and excursions to off-campus activities, such as apple picking, go-karting, and team building.

These bonds of brotherhood formed within the organization go far beyond just professional connections, providing a home away from home, mentorship, and a sense of community at a large university. Having brotherhood means enjoying lifelong connections that can provide support and celebration in life's most important moments.

Professionalism is one of the three main tenets of Theta Tau. We strive to provide resources and educational opportunities for both new members and brothers, with the hope that all brothers will develop the self confidence, self awareness, and lifelong skills applicable to whatever profession they choose.

Throughout the year, we serve not only our members but the greater engineering community by hosting information sessions, resume critiques, mock interviews, Alumni Panel Talks, and presentations on a variety of topics. Our favorite events include our Pre-Enrollment Office Hours and Career Fair 101 which we offer to the engineering community. Professional development is based in personal development, and Theta Tau provides great opportunities to assist brothers in finding and following their own paths.
