The Rochester Delta Pi Chapter was founded in May of 1977 by Dr. Wayne Walter and a small, dedicated group of mechanical engineering students who wanted to promote Pi Tau Sigma's values of leadership, scholarship, service, and integrity at RIT. Since its inception, the chapter has steadily grown with the mechanical engineering program to its current roster of over 40 active members and hundreds of successful alumni.
Each year, the Delta Pi chapter proudly upholds the ideal of Pi Tau Sigma by providing academic support, networking events, and leadership opportunities for our members and the broader mechanical engineering community at RIT.
