In addition to its traditional engineering degrees, the college offers several innovative programs in conjunction with other colleges and departments.
Biosystems engineering uses engineering science and mathematics to address opportunities and problems in biological, environmental, ecological, and agricultural systems. Biosystems engineering degrees are offered through a collaboration between the Tickle College of Engineering and the Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The college partners with the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education on the following two PhD programs:
This program partners with ORNL to provide graduate researchers with some of the most powerful computing and data science platforms available anywhere in the world. Students will have the opportunity to collaborate on computational challenges involving some of the largest and most unique data sources in science, engineering, and health care.
This program provides both breadth and depth while ensuring a solid grounding in scientific fundamentals for research. Topical areas have been chosen to resonate with Department of Energy priorities and industry needs, with a tailored integration of graduate courses across disciplines to provide deep expertise in a chosen specialty.
The Tickle College of Engineering has joined forces with the Haslam College of Business to establish the innovative MS-MBA dual-degree program allowing students to simultaneously earn a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science degree in one of several engineering disciplines.
