Common EF Announcements
  • The CEE department is completing the final approval stages for a new BS degree program in Environmental Engineering. Pending approval by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, the new major will be active in Fall of 2024.

    Current first year TCE students will be able to transfer to the new major without delaying graduation with small changes to your Spring 2024 class schedule. There are two upcoming information sessions where you can learn more about the new major as described in the linked flyer. You only need to attend one of the two sessions. Also, ENVE 101 Introduction to Environmental and Water Resources Engineering is being offered in the Spring semester. This 1-credit hour course with minimal out-of-class assignments is a great way to learn more about Environmental and Water Resources Engineering.

  • Tickle College of Engineering Spring 2024 Undergraduate Research Program
    This program is open to freshmen, sophomore, and junior engineering students and is designed to support undergraduate engineering students who want to start a new undergraduate research experience (i.e., the student must not have had a previous paid research experience with the prospective faculty mentor). Applicants are required to seek out a faculty mentor and ask them to provide a letter of support indicating that they will provide guidance in choosing a research topic, conducting the project, and creating a research poster. Students may choose a faculty mentor from another college besides engineering, but must submit a short statement about how this work will enhance their undergraduate engineering education.

    The link below lists several TCE faculty that have indicated their interest in supporting new students as part of this program. While students are not limited to these faculty, this list could serve as a resource for students who are seeking a mentor. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FFeBINnLickLZgGCl5MZ2d2gtMhn0ttetvZMH1cto1I/edit?usp=sharing The program will begin in January 2024 and run through the Spring semester. Participants will

    • be paid $15 per hour for up to 140 hours during the Spring 2024 semester
    • be expected to commit to at least 6 hours per week up to a maximum of 10 hours per week
    • receive a budget of $1000 for materials and supplies to support the project
    • be required to attend 3 professional development seminars during the semester
    • be required to create a research poster documenting their work and results
    Please complete the application at the link below by December 4, 2023 to be considered. Decisions will be communicated in mid-December. Direct questions to Dr. Kevin Kit (kkit@utk.edu).

  • Check Spam Folder for UTK Communication
    We want to remind students using Gmail to check their spam folder to ensure they are not missing critical updates about academic success, graduation, advising, and more. OIT made changes to improve Gmail security, however, as a result more emails may be delivered to spam folders. OIT recommends taking the following steps:
    • Mark incorrectly classified messages as “Not Spam.” Gmail uses machine learning to understand user preferences and recognize spam. By manually marking a message as “Not Spam,” Gmail learns how to manage messages more effectively.
    • Add trusted senders to personal contacts list. By adding an email address to the contacts list, Gmail knows not to mark messages from those senders as spam.
