Centers of Excellence
Research at Tennessee Technological University is enhanced by three Centers of Excellence:
- The Center for Energy Systems Research
- The Center for Manufacturing Research
- The Center for the Management, Utilization and Protection of Water Resources
The Centers bring together cooperating interdisciplinary research teams of faculty and students from departments, schools and research units throughout the campus.
These Centers of advanced scholarship within state-supported universities were founded and received special funding through the State of Tennessee Centers of Excellence program. Each Center strives to use present education resources to achieve excellence; to support economic development in the state; to enhance the intellectual, cultural and social climate for Tennessee citizens; to use external sources to improve research; and to attract nationally and internationally recognized faculty to Tennessee institutions.
