Nu Delta Chapter of Theta Tau
Theta Tau, a co-ed professional engineering fraternity, prides itself on three main pillars of service, professional development, and brotherhood. We are known for our service to our college, university, and the larger community. Our service projects create a unifying environment for learning and personal growth for our members. We develop and nurture engineers with strong communication, problem-solving, collaboration, and leadership skills that we demonstrate in our profession, our community, and in our lives. We forge lifelong bonds of fraternal fellowship, a journey that develops and delivers a network of lasting personal and professional relationships. We foster an inviting, safe, and social environment in which our members become lifelong friends.
Our chapter is very excited to host our regional conference this spring welcoming brothers from all over the great lakes region. We hope to facilitate professional development opportunities while networking with a diverse group and introducing visitors to our amazing community here in Pittsburgh. While we have many great events planned, we need your help to ensure we are able to maximize the weekend and represent the University of Pittsburgh and our chapter in the best possible light!

More About Our Chapter:
Our pillar chairs work hard to implement several events throughout each semester. Our service chair, Mike Cannizzaro, has been successful this semester in implementing our year-long service project of creating care packages for the military in honor of our brother Alex Jacques. Other events Mike has put on include a Tree of Life Synagogue bake sale, maintaining our strong relationship with the local First Food and Friends soup kitchen, and even adopting a local highway.
Our professional development chairs, Jon Klan and Carl Paasawe, implemented several new events this semester such as bringing in professionals from local companies, having professors from various departments come to talk, resume reviews with the co op office professionals, and even a scheduling event to help our younger members plan ahead. Additionally, they are holding an event where brothers showcase their own professional experiences through research, internship, study abroad, and co-op presentations. Our brotherhood chairs, Abby Daniels and Abigail Pinto, have had an extremely successful from planning events like paintballing, horseback riding, and cave exploring to our wonderful formal aboard the luxury cruise ship. These are just some highlights of the many events our chapter puts forward to support our own chapter, our engineering school, and our community!
