Annual Chapter Reports

UCSB Delta Phi

In the fall of 1978, a need for an honorary society was realized by Dr. Walter Yuen who called a meeting of eligible mechanical engineering students at University of California Santa Barbara. The interested students petitioned the National Council of Pi Tau Sigma and were subsequently granted a charter by the National Council and the active chapters.

The U.C. Santa Barbara Delta Phi Chapter was formally installed on May 19, 1979 by National President Dr. Suresh Chandra and National Secretary Dr. Hudy Hewitt, Jr. The charter fraternity has 17 members with expectations of attracting promising individuals from future Junior and Senior classes.

The Delta Phi chapter plans to work closely with ASME and presently, noon barbeques have been co-sponsored with ASME. The Chapter has started peer counseling with hopes of being joined by the other engineering honorary societies on campus to answer underclassmen's questions about classes and engineering in general.
