Who We Are

Brotherhood

Pledge Classes

Brothers learn, grow, and bond with their pledge classes. Your pledge brothers will be people that you will call your family for the remainder of your lifetime.

Big-Littles

Every brother of Theta Tau has a big. This relationship is a unique bond that becomes integral to each brother’s Theta Tau and college experience.

Epsilon Chapter History

1911

Epsilon Chapter Established at UC Berkeley

The Epsilon Chapter was established as the fifth chapter of Theta Tau in 1911. However, it disbanded in the 1960s due to political unrest. Theta Tau would not be present on the UC Berkeley campus again until over 40 years later.

2008

Epsilon Chapter Reinstalled as a Colony

The return of Theta Tau to UC Berkeley began with the help from the Omicron Gamma Chapter at UC Davis at the local Zachary’s Pizza on College Avenue.

2011

Epsilon Chapter Reinstalled as a Chapter

Since re-emerging on January 22nd, 2011, we currently have 70 active members and an expanding alumni network of over 200 members at various companies throughout the world.

National History

Inception of National Theta Tau

Theta Tau was originally founded as the Society of Hammer and Tongs on October 15, 1904 by four engineering students at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Since its founding, Theta Tau has initiated over 40,000 members. Today, Theta Tau is the nation’s oldest, largest, and foremost fraternity for engineers. The support and guidance of Theta Tau’s vast resources and network helps to foster lifelong relationships between brothers that extend into many professional disciplines.
