In the Spring of 2009, several students of UCSD's Jacobs School of Engineering felt that there was a lack of engineering representation in the Greek community on campus. Luckily an opportunity arose for them to change that.
With the help of a Theta Tau alumni, Jennifer Young, thirteen founding fathers took the first step towards establishing a chapter of the nation's oldest and largest professional engineering fraternity on the UCSD campus: Ashay Verma, Errynne Bell, Takahiro Kuwayama, Amelia Chu, Xiumei Wu, Chris Lam, Chuong Do, Joe Shao, Michelle Mojica, Tanakorn Best Techajongchareon, Scott Louie, Alan Leung, and John Phu Nguyen.
On November 20th, 2010, UCSD was installed as the Epsilon Delta Chapter of Theta Tau.
Theta Tau was originally founded as the "Society of Hammer and Tongs," on October 15, 1904 by Erich J. Schrader, Elwin L. Vinal, William M. Lewis, and Isaac B. Hanks at the University of Minnesota. The name was changed to Theta Tau at the fraternity's first national convention at the University of Minnesota in 1911. Since then, approximately 30,000 members have been initiated.
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 goals of the fraternity are to promote the social and professional development of its members during and after their college years.
