The National Fraternity:

Theta Tau is the nation’s oldest and largest professional fraternity in the field of engineering. The national fraternity was established on October 15, 1904 at the University of Minnesota under the name The Society of Hammer and Tongs. The national fraternity has been steadily growing ever since and we now have over 45 active national chapters. From slide rules to TI-92′s, Theta Tau is steeped in tradition and helps students meet the ever-changing challenge of the modern engineer.


Our Chapter:

The Chi Beta Chapter of Theta Tau was installed on May 4, 1991 at The University of Toledo. Since then, we have initiated 278 men and women. We have won numerous awards and have claimed the title of Best Chapter in the nation in 2000 and 2008.

Your Experience:

As a pledge and brother of Theta Tau you will experience lifelong bonds of friendship that will endure the tests of time and last far longer than you could ever imagine. You will have all of the social and philanthropic advantages of social and service fraternities, accented by the touch of many professional development events – from guest speakers to plant tours, and even open forums with alumni brothers already established in their careers.

Membership is open to all men and women studying in the fields engineering and engineering technology. Motivated, energetic, young engineers thrive in the environment fostered by Theta Tau.
