Membership Criteria / Selection Process

Please describe who is eligible for membership and list any criteria used in the selection process. If open to all, please indicate so. (Keep in mind the non-discrimination clause from the organization's constitution.)

PI TAU SIGMA members are chosen on a basis of sound engineering ability, scholarship (upper 35%), personality, and probable future success in their chosen field of Mechanical Engineering. There are three grades of membership: Honorary, Graduate, and Active. Honorary members are technical graduates actively engaged in engineering work; or members of mechanical engineering faculties. Graduate membership is conferred upon persons who would have been eligible had Pi Tau Sigma been established earlier in schools not having chapters, or upon those continuing graduate study. Active members are selected from the junior and senior mechanical engineering classes at their respective schools whose mechanical engineering curriculum must be accredited by ABET.

Here's What We Do

This is less formal than your purpose statement. Take this opportunity to discuss any activities the organization may be known for or what members of your organization can expect to gain through becoming a member.

Pi Tau Sigma is a Mechanical Engineering Honors Society. The aim of this chapter (Missouri Epsilon) is to maintain an active presence, both within the College of Engineering and the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, and to foster networking amongst top performing mechanical engineering students. This is done through volunteer work, hosting departmental events, and social networking events.
