The UT Martin Engineering program has a set of program objectives and outcomes that have been established by our constituency, made up of faculty, students, graduates, engineering employers, university administration, and our Industrial Advisory Board. Our program incorporates engineering design and competitive teamwork throughout the curriculum, providing small class sizes, personalized attention from faculty and staff, and the opportunity for a hands-on engineering educational experience. The program is implemented with a course schedule that is tailored to the needs of the individual student, with personalized advising throughout the educational experience. UTM Department of Engineering offers a comprehensive Bachelor of Science in Engineering Degree, with concentrations in:
Civil engineering is an engineering discipline that designs and supervises the construction of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams, buildings, airports, tunnels, and other large facilities. Civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines which can be categorized into several sub-disciplines including construction, environmental, transportation, structural, geotechnical, and water resource engineering. Our graduates work for government, state, or local municipal agencies or for private engineering firms.
Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline that designs, develops, tests, and supervises the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipment, including electric motors, lighting, wiring in buildings, radars, computers, consumer electronics, aircrafts, and telephones. Currently, many electrical engineers also work in areas of computer design and programming. Electrical engineering can be categorized into several sub-disciplines including power, control, signal processing, telecommunications, electronic, and electromagnetic engineering. Our graduates work for local and regional power companies, defense contractors, electronic design firms or in manufacturing-related companies.
Industrial engineering is an engineering discipline that studies and determines the most effective ways to maximize efficiency of production and services, including financial planning and cost analysis, management of organization, product requirements, manufacturing design, and information systems. Similar fields include Operations Research, Management Science, Financial Engineering, Supply Chain, Manufacturing Engineering, and Engineering Management. Our graduates work for manufacturing companies at both the regional and national levels.
Manufacturing engineers design the processes and equipment used to produce products. This may include the design of procedures or work sequences, and the design of tooling, dies or molds. These engineers determine the best way to use machinery to maximize efficiency and control costs. Manufacturing processes often involve automation and the use of robotics and electronic control systems. Our graduates work for companies that manufacture a wide array of products associated with the automotive, electronics and consumer product markets.
Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that designs, develops, manufactures, and tests machines, engines, tools, and mechanical systems, including internal combustion engines, steam and gas turbines, machine tools, motor vehicles, aircraft, robots, and air-conditioning equipment. Mechanical engineering is one of broadest of engineering disciplines. It requires a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and energy. Our graduates work for defense contractors, manufacturing firms, automobile designs and supplies, and private engineering firms.
