Annual Chapter Reports

Western Michigan Phi Pi

Western Michigan University was founded in 1903. The Mechanical Engineering department received accreditation in 1985. Soon after accreditation, members of the Mechanical Engineering staff pushed for a group of juniors and seniors in the Mechanical Engineering program to petition for a chapter of Pi Tau Sigma. The chapter, Western Michigan Phi Pi, was installed December 5, 1985, by National President Dr. William Cottingham and Secretary-Treasurer Dr. Edwin Griggs.

The Phi Pi chapter will foster leadership in the Mechanical Engineering department. Activities that the members of Phi Pi have implemented include a tutorial service and design contests.
