Theta Tau was founded in 1904 by four engineers: Erich Schrader, Elwin Vinal, William Lewis, and Isaac Hanks. It is the nation’s oldest and foremost fraternity for Engineers. The mission of Theta Tau is to “develop Engineering Leaders for Service, Profession, and Brotherhood.”
The University of Central Florida chapter, Rho Gamma, was founded in 2007. Currently, we have over 60 active members. We have brothers and alumni in all fields of engineering working with companies such as Lockheed Martin, Siemens, Mitsubishi, and NASA.
Life as an engineering student at UCF can be challenging; being a brother in Theta Tau makes it easier. The Rho Gamma chapter prides itself in creating an atmosphere that fosters academic excellence, fuels the engineering spirit, and offers a lifetime of memories.
We place great emphasis in professional development and thrive to help brothers prepare to succeed in the real world. Each semester we hold events such as mock interviews, workshops, and professional networking.
Rho Gamma Chapter is big on giving back to the community and on reaching out on campus. Each year we participate in Relay for Life, Expanding Your Horizons, and Lockheed Martin’s Day of Caring.
In addition to professionalism and community service, we host various social events each semester. We definitely know how to have fun.
If you’re a a student in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and are looking to get more out of your education while having fun at the same time, Theta Tau may be the fraternity for you. Come out to our Fall or Spring semester Rush events to hang out and get to know the brothers of the Theta Tau Rho Gamma Chapter.
