A reminder that March 1 is the deadline to submit applications for Tau Beta Pi Scholarships. Established in 1998, the TBP Scholarship program awards cash awards based on competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession.
Last year $302,000 was awarded to 156 TBP Scholars.
Beginning July 1, Dr. Mark L. Biermann, NY K ’84, will begin working as the vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty at Wartburg College (IA). Currently, Dr. Biermann is dean of the School of Natural and Applied Sciences at Taylor University (IN).

This past weekend University of California, Berkeley, engineering students kicked-off a seven-week program to teach and equip local high school students with the necessary skills to build a robot. The Tau Beta Pi CA Alpha chapter and the PiE (Pioneers in Engineering) partnered to host the robotics competition.
The goal of the program is to give the high school students the skills needed in engineering to learn and carry out the process of building a robot. Click here to read the article and watch the video from the first session.
