Welcome from the Director
Welcome to the Clay N. Hixson Student Success Center!
We are excited to serve as a resource for engineering students as they pursue their Engineering degree. Our center provides tutoring, academic advising, supplemental instruction, and student success workshops. Additionally, we oversee the College of Engineering student ambassador program and student awards.
Our tutors impart their knowledge of their subject. They strive to engage other students in active learning by explaining difficult concepts and providing examples for exploration. Tutors, encourage and empower students to develop confidence in their academic abilities. The goal of tutoring is to enable students to become self-sufficient and intrepid lifelong learners. Learn more about our tutoring program here.
Our academic advisors are equipped with the latest technology to provide a clear picture of academic success for our Engineering students. They are knowledgeable and committed to assisting students in their program of study. If you are interested in learning more about our Engineering programs feel free to contact one of our advisors.
Supplemental instruction is a learning enhancement program. It is designed to organize and improve the ways in which students prepare outside of class. Supplemental instruction is attached to a subject to provide students with a systematic and disciplined approach for processing the subject material assigned by the professor. The sessions are held outside of class and are peer led by an “SI leader." You may learn more about our Supplemental instruction program here.
Student success workshops are organized by our office to assist our students in reaching their personal, academic, and professional goals. Workshops are centered on students’ academic and non-academic issues, technical communications, and other student related topics.
Our student ambassadors are an elite group of current engineering students that have excelled academically and have a willingness to share their experiences with others. Ambassadors uphold the philosophy, mission and goals of Tennessee Technological University and the College of Engineering by personal example. To learn more about our Student Ambassador program visit our page.
Students’ achievement is highly valued in the College of Engineering. Our office coordinates the student awards ceremonies to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of our engineering students. Award recipients are selected by chair persons, faculty, and staff from each engineering department. To see past recipients visit our Awards page.
Remember, our mission is your success!
