Zachary Lamb, senior in Auburn University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, received the 2010–2011 Centennial Graduate Fellowship from national engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi. Lamb is one of 28 graduating seniors nationwide to be selected. Tau Beta Pi fellowships are awarded on the basis of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, as well as potential for future contributions to the engineering profession.

Lamb has played an active leadership role in a wide variety of research projects and programs at Auburn. He served as a student representative with the Cupola Engineering Ambassadors and the College of Engineering Student Projects and Research Committee. Lamb will begin his master’s degree in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University’s robotics institute in the School of Computer Science this fall.

With a membership of more than 490,000, Tau Beta Pi is the world’s largest engineering society. Founded in 1885, it recognizes students of distinguished scholarship and exemplary character. There are 232 collegiate chapters in the U.S. and 18 active alumni chapters across the country.
