Other Student Support Programs

The College provides an orientation program for all new students, both freshmen and transfers. The advising of freshmen is done centrally by Engineering Advising Services. Upper-class students are advised by faculty members in the major department.

The College of Engineering hosts a series of summer engineering programs for rising seventh to twelfth grade students each summer. Each program is a one-week residential experience with the exception of MITES7. Our mission is to provide students who show an interest in engineering studies an early exposure to and preparation for scientific study and research.

The Engineering Diversity Programs (EDP) Office strives to increase the number of underrepresented students, including African Americans, Hispanics, Alaskan Natives, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans, who graduate with engineering degrees.

The Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP), a program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, was created to help double the number of underrepresented students attending college and graduating with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) from eight participating universities and two participating community colleges in Tennessee.
