The Office of Engineering Diversity Programs offers an array of pre-college engineering-focused enrichment programs for high school students.
Established in 2001, the High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Twelfth Graders (HITES12) program identifies and selects rising twelfth grade students who demonstrate an interest in engineering and offers them the opportunity to explore UT.
Engineers Day WTI
Engineers Day 2018 West Tennessee Initiative (WTI) is an overnight program for current high school juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing engineering.
The college is seeking current UT students to serve as counselors for our annual Pre-College Summer Programs during the summer of 2021. Counselors will lead and mentor rising twelfth grade students interested in science, math, and engineering.
The Engineering VOLunteers for Tenth Graders (eVOL10) program for rising tenth graders has been discontinued for the summer of 2021. We encourage you to apply back before your senior year for the HITES12 program.
