Charter Date May 8,1959
Chapter No. 69
Advisor Dr. Rick J Couvillion
The Arkansas Tau Upsilon Chapter of Pi Tau Sigma was formally installed May 8,1959 by National President Carroll M. Leonard and National Secretary-Treasurer David S. Clark.
The outgrowth of the chapter started during the fall of 1958 when a group of outstanding mechanical engineering students, under the able leadership of Professor T. B. Jefferson, petitioned the National Council for a chapter to be established at the University of Arkansas.
Arkansas Tau Upsilon has been active in carrying out the high ideals of Pi Tau Sigma by cooperating with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, A.S.M.E., and S.A.E., in matters of departmental interest. The chapter provided guides during open house ceremonies for the new Mechanical Engineering Building. Some of the activities that this chapter engages in are: The annual Engineers Open House, St. Patrick Festivities, Engineers Banquet, and the chapter's Spring Banquet. The chapter expects to identify itself with some new projects which will stimulate interest in the Profession of Mechanical Engineering.
