Engineering Futures

The award-winning Tau Beta Pi Engineering Futures Program was founded more than 20 years ago in response to a need to provide engineering students training in the "soft skills," those non-technical skills necessary for success in the workplace but rarely included in engineering curricula. The Engineering Futures Program received national recognition as winner of the 2007 Excellence in Engineering Education Collaboration Award.

The Nevada Beta chapter of Tau Beta Pi hosts Engineering Futures workshops throughout the year.  It is open to all who want to attend, but attendance of at least one session is required for candidates.  If you are a candidate and cannot attend, please notify one of the officers to make alternate arrangements.

The 2017 banquet took place on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at 6 PM @ Bucca di Beppo (Flamingo & Paradise).

Upcoming

Every semester, we look for new ways to collaborate with the College of Engineering's student organizations and event coordinators to hold more events that interest and benefit the student body. If your organization wishes to collaborate with us, feel free to contact us!
