Andrew Pfaller, a Ferris State University graduate from Lowell, has been inducted into Tau Alpha Pi, the national honor society for engineering technology students.
Pfaller, who was home-schooled, graduated from Ferris in Spring 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Welding Engineering Technology.
“Andrew was one of our very top students in a rigorous ABET-accredited program, and as an alum he will be a wonderful ambassador for the Welding Engineering Technology program, the College of Engineering Technology and Ferris State University,” said CET professor Kenneth Kuk.
Tau Alpha Pi may elect to membership the highest four percent of an institution’s total engineering technology enrollment in a given term.
Founded in 1973, Tau Alpha Pi membership is open to both associate-degree and baccalaureate candidates. The society’s purpose is twofold: Recognize high standards of scholarship among students in engineering technology programs and to promote and encourage scholastic achievement by offering outstanding engineering technology students membership in the society.
The Michigan Epsilon chapter of Tau Alpha Pi was established at Ferris in 2000.
