Tennessee Engineering Network Program

Tennessee Engineering Network Program

The Tennessee Engineering Network (TEN) is a membership program that provides superior recruiting and campus access to the college’s student and faculty talent pipeline. It is designed to support your recruiting needs and enhance your brand across the university and consumer landscape.

Expand Your Recruiting Efforts Throughout the Year

Concerned you may not make your targets for a successful recruiting season or meet special project staffing goals? Engage with TCE’s outstanding engineering students throughout the year in your own customized plan through:

  • Engineering Expo attendance and sponsorship
  • Individual tabling events and activity sponsorships
  • Job postings (on-campus and virtual)
  • Specialized student and faculty engagement events

Our highly experienced TEN program staff will connect you with the talent you need to grow your business lines, meet current engineering demands, or backfill your transitioning workforce.

Develop a Customized Strategic Plan

You need more than a once-a-year engagement with students to move the needle. The TEN program team will help you customize your own strategic campus plan and connect you with our extensive network of talent. Engagement success is just a customized plan away!

Connect with our Talent

The engineering world is rapidly changing. We know campus interactions are often mutually beneficial to ensuring today’s developing talent addresses tomorrow’s need. The TEN program increases your presence among our Tickle Engineering talent. Program members gain access to the right connections within the college through special events, design project support, research projects, shared meals, and other select occasions.

Meet Stellar Faculty

We know connecting with a faculty member or department about a specific project or topic can be challenging.
