Activities, Services, and Programs
This goal will be accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive and integrated series of recruitment and retention initiatives that address key transition points from undergraduate recruitment through preparation for graduate school.
- Meetings with the Tennessee Tech Academic Advisors
- TLSAMP study groups
- Joint National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, or other College of Engineering departmental programs and professional organization.
TLSAMP students attend dinner with sponsors hosting the function at local restaurants or through university catering.
As part of TLSAMP, participants are paired with a student mentor who can help guide students through the first year.
Ongoing Student Support
As part of the TLSAMP program, students have a place to seek help and support. Our staff will be available to answer questions and give guidance.
Helping foster a strong community, TLSAMP students live in the same area.
Summer Bridge Program
TLSAMP students begin their college experience with a one-week summer orientation program involving workshops and seminars on study skills (e.g., math, chemistry, physics) along with building relationships and habits of successful students. Participants tour research centers of excellence and area industries. Recreational activities are included.
Freshman engineering students typically complete introductory engineering courses, mathematics, chemistry, and others. They also lean about the different engineering, computer science and engineering technology disciplines. This is a time when students learn to participate in group learning, connect with other students and grasp the professional aspect of career opportunities.
TLSAMP students will have the opportunity to travel the world on study abroad trips, learn hands-on skills through internships and cooperative education and participate in exciting research projects. The College of Engineering will assist you in this summer learning experience.
