Welcome to the Purdue University Tau Beta Pi Chapter Website!



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.
