Top engineering students honored

Tau Beta group

Seventeen WMU students in April were initiated into Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society.  Tau Beta Pi recognizes undergraduate engineering students that display “distinguished scholarship and exemplary character.” WMU’s Michigan Kappa Chapter has consistently been recognized at the national level for its service activities.  Eligible students must be elected by the chapter to membership after being invited to apply based on their class rank  -- the top eighth of juniors and top fifth of seniors.  WMU Provost Timothy Greene and Dean Houssam Toutanji congratulated the students at a banquet immediately following the initiation ceremony.
