UT and King University, a private university in Bristol, Tennessee, are forging a unique partnership that will allow students to graduate with a degree from both institutions.

The dual degree program will allow students meeting certain requirements agreed upon by both universities to spend their first three years at King before being admitted to UT’s Tickle College of Engineering in select areas.

“This is a program we are very pleased to begin offering,” said UT’s Masood Parang, associate dean of the college and a professor of mechanical engineering. “This will familiarize students with multiple fields of study and introduce them to a range of available majors.

“This agreement provides a framework for strategic collaboration between the universities.”
