Annual Chapter Reports

Southern Delta Mu

The need for a Mechanical Engineering Honor Fraternity was first realized by Professor Chu Chen Chen and Morgan Watson, then chairman of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Under their supervision, the National Council of Pi Tau Sigma was petitioned in the Spring of 1972 and again in the Spring of 1974.

The petition was approved and on April 26, 1975 the Southern University Delta Mu Chapter was formally installed by National President Dr. Edward Jerger and Vice-President Dr. Gerald Whitehouse. The occasion was celebrated by a banquet. The 23 charter members consisted of 19 students and four faculty members.

The Delta Mu Chapter works closely with the local A.S.M.E. student chapter and its functions. Included in the chapter's duties are the recruitment of freshmen of the Mechanical Engineering Department, and presentation of awards to outstanding faculty members and students. Also, the installation date of April 26 will be celebrated with a formal banquet annually.
