The Tickle College of Engineering offers a superior graduate education. We are one of the fastest growing public PhD engineering programs in the nation, with 16 master’s and 15 doctoral degrees offered across eight departments.
Our award-winning faculty include National Academy of Engineering members, Distinguished Scientists, and UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chairs who are world renown in their areas of expertise. Since 2012, we have added three new academic buildings with a fourth—a $129 million, state-of-the-art new Engineering Complex—set to open in 2021. The complex will house flexible laboratory spaces for advanced engineering research.
The college’s close alliance with nearby ORNL—the nation’s largest federal lab—allows us to extend unique opportunities to students to pursue projects working with professors and researchers who are internationally respected in their fields.
Additionally, UT and ORNL co-sponsor the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education, the fastest-growing doctoral program at UT, with doctorates in both big data and energy science offered. These resources, among others, provide a level of access and experience for graduate students not readily available outside Knoxville.
Whatever your desired path forward, we will prepare you to use your knowledge and skills to lead and serve others in a way only a UT Volunteer can.
