Staying Ahead of the Challenge

In order for the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tennessee Tech University to maintain its vision for outstanding education and research, it is important for our students to have state-of-the-art equipment in their learning laboratories. We are asking you to support our ME Laboratory Improvement Fund. 

Upgrading our learning laboratories will help the department continue to achieve the College of Engineering's vision to educate 21st Century Renaissance Engineers. With your commitment and willingness to provide your commitment and willingness to provide support, whatever your gift size, we know we can prepare our current and future students to be successful, innovative engineers who solve societal problems. We encourage you to contribute to specific laboratory needs or in honor of a professor, and identify what you wish for your gift to support.
