The mission of UTC’s ENGR program is to provide accessible education in the theory and application of engineering in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment that
- Prepares students for successful careers in industry, government, and academia
- Emphasizes project-based design
- Promotes life-long learning
- Serves the engineering profession
In support of this mission, UTC’s ENGR program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:
- Function as successful professionals in a variety of engineering disciplines
- Function effectively in multidisciplinary environments
- Adapt to various environments
- Participate in further knowledge building opportunities
- Are progressing toward Professional Registration
The Engineering program faculty includes those with degrees in this program area as well as faculty from other programs who teach the engineering fundamental courses.
Degree and Accreditation:
Graduates of this program receive the B.S.E. degree. This program is accredited by the EAC of ABET Inc. under the Engineering Program Criteria.
UTeach (UTSM): The UTeach Engineering program provides students the opportunity to (1) obtain a B.S.E degree that emphasizes the general focus of engineering across disciplines or within a discipline and (2) obtain eligibility for teacher licensure (for teaching Mathematics or Physics) in Tennessee and in those states that grant reciprocity privileges to graduates of institutions accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The students’ education culminates in engineering design and student teaching design (curriculum creation and classroom teaching) experiences.
The UTeach Engineering students are advised by the faculty in the Engineering program. The specific UTeach curriculum courses and activities are housed in and supported by the UTeaChattanooga program.
