Engineering On Campus & Beyond, March 2013

Eight engineering students from the Indiana Delta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi at Valparaiso University recently volunteered with the Habitat for Humanity of Porter County (IN). In addition to cleaning and painting a Habitat house, the IN Delta chapter also made a $500 donation to help support Habitat. Read more here

Tau Beta Pi IN Delta Chapter advisor, Professor Dr. G. Scott Duncan (IN D ’90), had this to say about the event, “Valpo engineering students not only perform admirably in the classroom, but are known for their commitment to service and helping others. The Habitat for Humanity event is one of many service activities that these dedicated students participate in.”


The Michigan Kappa Chapter of Tau Beta Pi at Western Michigan University recently completed a service project to build a twenty-eight foot wheelchair ramp. The project was supported through a Tau Beta Pi Greater Interest in Government (GIG) grant. More information on this project will be available in the upcoming May issue of The Bulletin and on the TBP website, here


The University of Wyoming recently profiled research being done in the School of Energy Resource related to utilizing the state’s abundance of wind as a natural energy resource. Dr. Jonathan W. Naughton, WY A ’86, is the Director of the Wind Energy Research Center (WERC) at UW and discusses the potential production from “Wyoming’s highest quality winds.”

Recent UW graduate Ashli Babbitt, WY A 2009, was one of the first students to contribute to the WERC research efforts. She says, “Wyoming has a lot of fantastic natural resources—and wind is one of them, even though some people wish it wasn’t. We all put up with it on a daily basis, we might as well get something out of it!” Click here for the full article
