PTS Services


The PTS Mentoring program offers all students in Mechanical Engineering the opportunity to have a personal mentor that they can turn to with any questions or concerns. The mentoring program is dynamic and caters to the student, adjusting to whatever he or she wishes to get out of it.

Test Bank

Pi Tau Sigma has a test bank where past Mechanical Engineering exams are posted. We encourage current students to use these tests for studying, as they can be very helpful in solidifying knowledge!
