print entire profile



Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students are admitted directly to the College of Engineering if they meet the minimum requirements.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students may enter a degree-granting department upon admission to the University. Students who are eligible for admission to the College of Engineering may choose to enter into Basic Engineering if they have not decided on a specific engineering discipline.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Foreign students must present a financial statement and have a TOEFL score of 500.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students


Residency Requirements

To meet the residence requirements, a student must complete at least 25 percent of the credit for the degree requirements including a minimum of 24 semester hours of 3000 and 4000 level course credit at Tennessee Technological University.
(For engineering programs, 25% is 32 cr-hr; for ET and CS, it is 30 cr-hr)

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

In addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the University, transfer students seeking admission to an Engineering major must have
• a cumulative higher education QPA of at least 2.0 (excluding credit for remedial and developmental courses) and
• a grade of “C” or higher in a pre-calculus mathematics course that includes a study of the trigonometric identities.

The College of Engineering will assist transfer students in making the transition to Tennessee Tech at any point in their academic programs.

These requirements also apply to current TTU students desiring to change their major from a non-engineering program to Engineering. Tennessee Tech’s engineering curricula are designed so that the needs of students who choose to initially attend a community college or other college/university not offering a B.S. engineering program may be met. Students who complete the first two years coursework of an applicable Tennessee Transfer Pathway Agreement at another institution can complete curricular requirements for a B.S. degree at Tennessee Tech in approximately two years.

Students who wish to transfer to the Engineering Technology program should consult with the Chairperson of the Department of Manufacturing and Engineering Technology.
