Welcome from the Chair
Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department. On this web site, you will find information about our program of study, course descriptions, course schedule, tutoring services, laboratories, student organizations, faculty, and staff. Our desire is that you find useful information about the Mechanical Engineering Program at Tennessee Tech as well as the many opportunities that are available to our students.
The department offers undergraduate, master's and doctoral degrees through the College of Engineering. Tennessee Tech University is accredited by SACS the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In addition the Engineering Departments are also accredited by ABET the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
Our students are encouraged to grow professionally through participation in student organizations such as the Mini Baja Car Team, SAE - Society of Automotive Engineers, Pi Tau Sigma, ASME American Society of Mechanical Engineers, AIAA American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Engineering Joint Council. Co-op opportunities are also encouraged so that students can gain hands-on work experience. Graduate students have opportunities for research through the department and through the various centers of excellence (Center for Manufacturing Research, Water Resources Center, and Center for Energy Systems Research).
