Annual Chapter Reports



In the Fall of 2017, a newly appointed faculty Dr. Daichi Fujioka proposed to establish a Pi Tau Sigma Chapter at University of Nevada, Reno to enhance the ME department’s student activity quality.  A mechanical engineering senior Samuel Frost expressed an interest in leading the initiation procedure and prepared the petition documents.  The new chapter petition was submitted to the society secretary Dr. Alex Moutsoglou at early Spring of 2018.

The University of Nevada, Reno petition for a new chapter was approved and was designated the Nevada Reno Beta Nu chapter.  Nevada Reno Beta Nu was officially chartered on February 24, 2018, at the Pi Tau Sigma National Convention. Gunner Scott, a qualifying ME Senior, accompanied Dr. Fujioka to the 2018 Pi Tau Sigma Annual Convention at Miami University to be formally inducted into the Society.  The remaining eligible students listed on the charter were inducted into the Society at the first initiation ceremony held at the UNR Campus on April 20, 2018.  In the meeting, Zachary Dugan was officially elected to be the first president of Nevada Reno Beta Nu chapter.
