For 175 years, engineering at the University of Tennessee has sparked innovation and creative discovery. The Tickle College of Engineering will mark this milestone with a yearlong celebration honoring its graduates, students, and faculty members—culminating in a grand gala event and the dedication of the John D. Tickle Engineering Building this October.
Estabrook Hall was constructed initially to house the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanic Arts. The building is currently home to the Engineering Fundamentals Division and the Office of Engineering Diversity Programs.
Our engineering alumni have many memories from their days on the University of Tennessee campus. Several of our graduates share their stories about the professors and classes that they remember best from UT.
The Tickle College of Engineering consists of eight departments of study, seven nationally renowned research centers, and more than 100 state-of-the-art laboratories.
In 1973, the UT Tickle College of Engineering established the Minority Engineering Scholarship Program (MESP). Now called Engineering Diversity Programs (EDP), it incorporates pre-college summer programs; bridge programs for new freshmen; recruiting initiatives targeted to potential underrepresented students; and retention and mentoring programs.
Exciting, award-winning research and innovation are happening throughout the Tickle College of Engineering.
