Kappa Theta Epsilon (KTE), Theta Chapter
As one of Drexel University's leading student organizations, Kappa Theta Epsilon (KTE) is a national honor society that promotes co-operative education programs at universities across the United States; Drexel's chapter is one of eight active chapters in the organization.
Most recently, the Theta Chapter at Drexel University was awarded the KTE Chapter of the Year Award at the National Convention in April 2011. The Chapter also received the award in 2006.
KTE was founded in 1957 at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. KTE recognizes individuals who display scholarship, industrial ability, integrity, breadth of interest and adaptability while participating in a cooperative education program.
Members of the Theta Chapter regularly attend quarterly general body meetings, professional development programs, and networking events. In addition, members regularly volunteer their time to enhance the cooperative education experiences of their peers.
The Theta Chapter at Drexel currently has the most members of any KTE Chapter, with one hundred students participating in the organization. This chapter is unique in that its students not only come from Drexel's College of Engineering, but also from several other Drexel schools including the Bennett S. LeBow College of Business, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
KTE welcomes all eligible Drexel students to join our organization. Invitations to join are sent to eligible students in the winter and summer terms.
