College Mission:

The mission of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is to develop exceptional engineers, computer scientists, and technologists, who will contribute to their fields and society through excellence in academics, applied research, and innovation.

College Objectives:

Grounded in the application of scientific and mathematical principles and based on a commitment to interdisciplinary study, our programs and activities:

  • Prepare undergraduate students for rewarding professional careers or graduate study and for a lifetime of creative thinking and adaptive learning as productive citizens;
  • Prepare post-baccalaureate and graduate students for continuing professional development and career advancement;
  • Promote excellence in teaching and learning through scholarship in our disciplines;
  • Perform and disseminate applied research that solves problems of transforming information, matter, and energy into structures, machines, products, technologies, systems, organizations, and processes; and
  • Serve the University and our professional communities with leadership and distinction.

The CECS supports programs in engineering, computer science, and engineering technology management that lead to degrees in:

  • Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E.)
  • Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.)
  • Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)
  • Bachelor of Science with a major in Computer Science (B.S.)
  • Bachelor of Science with a major in Engineering Technology Management (B.S.)

In addition, the CECS supports programs that lead to the following graduate programs:

  • Master of Science with a major in Engineering (M.S.)
  • Master of Science with a major in Computer Science (M.S.)
  • Master of Science with a major in Engineering Management (M.S.)
  • Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Computational Engineering (Ph.D.)

These graduate programs are discussed in a separate Graduate Program publication
