Tennessee Tech University is the state's only technological university. That distinction is in large part due to the presence of the College of Engineering and the University's three engineering-related Centers of Excellence. Faculty expertise coupled with student interaction supports active learning and knowledge discovery across a broad range of disciplines within the research centers and academic programs at TTU. Area businesses find the expertise they need in Tennessee Tech’s research and development capabilities, while the workforce benefits from the University's quality engineering, technology and computer science graduates.
