President's Welcome

Welcome to the Alpha Chapter of Kappa Theta Pi. Kappa Theta Pi is proud to be the first professional co-ed technology fraternity in the country. We have always been one of the most diverse groups at the University of Michigan, open to students of all genders, majors, ethnicities, sexualities, and backgrounds. We are centered around our 5 pillars: professional development, alumni connections, social growth, technological advancement, and academic support.

Our mission is to bring together students who are passionate about tech and build a strong, lifelong community. KTP has fostered this community into growing stronger, more connected, and more inclusive than ever before.

Now, as a senior, I can look back at my time at Michigan and without a doubt say joining KTP was one of the best decisions I have made, both in my professional development and by introducing me to lifelong friends. I am excited to continue to serve as KTP’s president, and I will continue to work hard with our members to push KTP to greater heights.

Thank you,
Simrun Buttar

History

Kappa Theta Pi takes pride in being the first professional technology fraternity in the country. Our members learn a plethora of skills needed to stay knowledgeable about the tech industry, as well as a strong sense of professional development for future job positions.

KTP was founded on January 10, 2012, with the mission to create a tech community that enthusiastic students could join. In making KTP, the founders set up a strong community that has only grown in the 8 years since its inception.

Our members come from all around campus. We are designers, analysts, computer scientists, engineers, artists, entrepreneurs, economists, philosophers, psychologists, and more. What makes the KTP community strong is our shared passion for technology and our unique backgrounds meshing together as one.

Our alumni are part of an extensive and tight-knit network that stretches across the country. They can be found from Seattle to New York, from Silicon Valley to Detroit, in both startup companies and larger businesses. Our alumni provide valuable insight for our members’ professional development.
