Pi Tau Sigma takes pride in acknowledging the excellence of faculty, staff, and mechanical engineering students. One way we do this is by presenting awards for outstanding service and dedication in the world of academia. Some of these awards are given annually and other awards are given each semester. Below is a list of people who have received awards recently, and below that is a description of each award that Pi Tau Sigma gives out. Congratulations to these distinguished people!
