instill in its members a sense of responsibility and leadership
The Manhattan College Sigma Tau chapter was installed in 1967.
Active members are chosen from students in mechanical engineering on the basis of engineering ability, scholarship and personality. They are selected from the top third of the junior class with a 3.2 minimum GPA. Faculty and graduates may be chosen on the basis of distinguished engineering endeavor.
