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.
Free Speech Movement
The Epsilon Chapter at Berkeley 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.
The return of Theta Tau onto
UC Berkeley began with the
help from the Omicron Gamma
Chapter at UC Davis at the local
Zachary's Pizza on College Avenue.
Connections For Life
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.
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.
We are the oldest and largest professional
engineering fraternity in the United States
with over 35,000 initiated members at over 61 campuses.
