The Tau Beta Pi Association was founded at Lehigh University in 1885 by Edward Higginson Williams, Jr., to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.

The Pennsylvania Lambda Chapter of Tau Beta Pi is dedicated to the recognition of engineering scholars at the University of Pittsburgh and professional improvement of its members through seminars, networking, service, and social events.
