As a public research institution, the University of Tennessee is committed to enriching the educational experience of undergraduate students through research. Research experiences for undergraduate students reinforce classroom learning, clarify career interests and goals, and stimulate interest in graduate study.
During the summer or throughout the academic year, working alongside a faculty member provides the student with access to cutting-edge technologies and the opportunity to further develop the ability to think, learn, and work independently; sharpen analytical skills; and contribute to the creation of new knowledge. UT engineering students have access to a number of programs to support their research interests.
- UT Undergraduate Summer Research Internships
- NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
- TLSAMP program of the College’s Office of Diversity
