Welcome to the Home Page for the Department of Chemical Engineering at Tennessee Technological University. Our Department offers both a B.S. and M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering as well as a College-level Ph. D. The hallmark of our program is the use of student-centered pedagogy that focuses on hands-on learning as well as ample research opportunities for all students, from Freshman-level to Ph. D.-level...and anyone in between. We encourage you to explore the website to learn more about our program.
Applicants must apply online at www.tntech.edu/jobs and will be required to electronically upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy, research plan, and copy of transcripts for highest degree earned (all official transcripts required upon hire) at time of application.

Lindsey showed that with one of the toughest degrees you can get at this school that you can have the balance by being successful on the soccer field.
Chemical Engineering is working in the implementation of MoLE-SITM(Mobile Learning Environment and Systems Infrastructure). MoLE-S will allow students to use on-demand engineering software anywhere using portable devices as specified by the minimum requirements (see flyer below) provided there is internet connectivity.
