About us

The California Gamma chapter of Tau Beta Pi at Stanford University serves the Stanford community by acting as a representative entity for academic excellence, leadership, and continued service to our community. Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. Founded at Lehigh University by Edwards H. Williams, Jr., in 1885, Tau Beta Pi is the nation’s second oldest honor society recognizing students of exemplary character and distinguished scholarship. Across the U.S., there are 248 collegiate chapters, 45 active alumni chapters in 16 districts, and approximately 600,000 initiated members.


We organize mentorship and tutoring programs to help students navigate their undergraduate careers and encourage peer performance in STEM.


We host panels, fireside chats, and dinners for industry leaders to speak with students about their professional experiences and career opportunities.


We facilitate community-building and collaboration in the engineering community at Stanford through alumni mixers and social gatherings.
