Our Story

We are the first & foremost professional engineering fraternity at Cornell University.

Line Created with Sketch.

Theta Tau is the oldest, largest, and foremost Fraternity for Engineers. Since its founding at the University of Minnesota in 1904, over 30,000 have been initiated over the years. With emphasis on quality and a strong fraternal bond, the Fraternity has chapters in only ABET accredited schools, and limits to seventy the number of student members in any one of its chapters across the nation.

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. The members of Theta Tau are: Honest and Ethical, Dependable and Trustworthy, Respectful, Generous, and Proud of our Community of Engineers.

What we do

One of the three main pillars of Theta Tau is service, and throughout the year, our brothers look forward to giving back to the Ithaca-Tompkins County community at large.

We support service events at Cornell such as Into the Streets, a student-led program that sponsors an enormous annual service event, and many more. Each semester, our new member class takes the lead in hosting our main service event to raise funds for our charity of choice.

Many of our brothers also take part in Cornell’s YOURS outreach program, which aims to provide opportunities and mentoring for students living in mobile home parks in the area. Here we are able to present simple engineering concepts to the students in an interactive, hands-on method that fosters interest in math, science, and engineering.

In addition to mentoring, we host many events during the year to aid any member of the Cornell community in developing professionalism.

At Cornell Theta Tau, the bonds we make are integral to our Cornell experiences and to our future professional careers. Nikita and Pavan, the social chairs, are in charge of planning and organizing interactive activities were brothers strengthen friendships and make memories. The brothers of Theta Tau have enjoyed formal events scheduled at the end of every semester, date nights, pledge class bonding events, and excursions to off-campus activities, such as apple picking, go-karting, and team building.

Events are also focused on the Cornell community. Inter-fraternity events with other professional fraternities at Cornell as well as Slope Day are a few favorite events. We are keen on maintaining strong relationships within the Brotherhood as well as expanding our network by hosting social events with other professional fraternities at Cornell.

Brotherhood is one of the primary tenants of Theta Tau and as such, we make aim to provide ample opportunities for brothers to create bonds and memories that will last a lifetime.

The end of spring semester is always a sentimental time for Theta Tau. We hold a senior sendoff each spring to celebrate the graduates' achievements from their time at Cornell as well as bidding them a heartfelt farewell. Seniors often return to visit the brotherhood that they grew to love during their college careers.

Professionalism is one of the three main tenants of Theta Tau. We strive to provide resources and educational opportunities for both new members and brothers, with the hope that all brothers will develop the self confidence, self awareness, and lifelong skills applicable to whatever profession they choose.

Throughout the year, we serve not only our members but the greater engineering community by hosting information sessions, resume critiques, mock interviews, and presentations on a variety of topics. Professional development is based in personal development, and Theta Tau provides great opportunities to assist brothers in finding and following their own paths.
