National Mission Statement
"The Tau Beta Pi Association was founded at Lehigh University in 1885 by Edward Higginson Williams, Jr., to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges."
Maryland Beta recognizes and provides a social environment for the top engineering students and alumni at UMCP. Maryland Beta activities include academic support, community service, social events, scholarships, fellowships, and leadership opportunities. To be eligible for membership, potential electees must be at the top 1/8 of the engineering junior class or the top 1/5 of the engineering senior class and must be currently or previously enrolled in at least one 300-level course. Our lounge is located at 0111 EGR (Glenn L. Martin Hall); drop by for a snack, a quiet homework spot, or more information about our organization!
