Professor William Sutton, Dean
The College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga strives to serve the people, businesses, and industries of our region and support their technical needs. The College exists as the region’s principal resource for educational, applied research, and service programs.
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 Engineering (B.S.E.)
- 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
The undergraduate engineering majors are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET Inc.1, the accrediting agency for engineering programs. The undergraduate Computer Science program concentrations in Software Systems and Scientific Applications are accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET Inc.1, the accrediting agency for computing programs. Further explanations of these accreditations are provided in the specific program descriptions. One concentration in Computer Science - UTeach - is not yet accredited by ABET Inc. The undergraduate Engineering Technology Management program is not yet accredited by an appropriate agency. However, the University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The CECS full-time faculty has extensive experience in engineering or computer science, professional practice, research, and higher education. In addition, the college draws on the talents of adjunct faculty who are employed in professional capacities in a variety of industrial and governmental settings.
