Tennessee Engineering Schools & Degrees

The Volunteer State has no shortage of engineering programs, with ten accredited engineering programs, in total. These include engineering programs at the three different University of Tennessee campuses, in Chattanooga, Knoxville and Martin. In addition, engineering students can study at Christian Brothers University, Lipscomb University, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University, Union University, University of Memphis and Vanderbilt University.

Of the many engineering schools in Tennessee, most offer bachelor’s degrees in various kinds of engineering. For example, Christian Brothers University School of Engineering offers undergraduate programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and engineering management.

The Tennessee Technological University College of Engineering offers programs in basic engineering, chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, manufacturing and engineering technology and mechanical engineering.

Tennessee Engineering Schools to Consider

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga boasts many of the same options for undergraduate engineering degrees, as well as a degree in “general engineering” and a combined degree in computer science and engineering.
Engineering programs are relatively well-scattered throughout the state, with the most options in Nashville and Knoxville.

For engineering students interested in pursuing graduate programs, options include Tennessee Technological University, Christian Brothers University and others. For example, at the University of Memphis Herff College of Engineering, students may take graduate courses of study in biomedical engineering, civil engineering, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering and engineering technology. Depending on the concentration, the studies may culminate in either a master’s or a PhD degree.

Lipscomb University offers a Master’s of Science in Engineering Management as well as undergraduate engineering degrees in civil, environmental, electrical and computer, and mechanical engineering.

At the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, graduate students may earn their master’s degree in engineering, engineering management or computer science. It is also possible to earn a PhD in computational engineering.

Online Engineering Degrees in Tennessee

If you would prefer to study engineering online, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is among the top online graduate programs in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report. As of 2015, the school ranks at the seventh best online engineering program in the country.

The school’s graduate program in engineering management is given 100 percent online and uses interactive software for exchange with instructors, culminating in a master’s degree in engineering.
In addition to the many schools offering full engineering programs, Tennessee is home to multiple community colleges and technical institutes, where students can begin engineering studies.

While these schools do not award bachelor’s degrees, several of the Tennessee Technology Center campuses do offer associate’s degrees in various engineering fields. Upon completing these degrees, students may more easily transfer into full engineering programs elsewhere in the state.

Top Engineering Employers in Tennessee

Two large engineering firms in Tennessee are Carpenter Wright Engineers PLLC and Barge Cauthen & Associates.

Carpenter Wright Engineers PLLC is a consulting and engineering firm that specializes in structural engineering. They handle projects that include commercial and residential buildings, medical centers; corporate buildings, large structures and more. Their extensive engineering software allows them to also specialize in 2- and 3-story structures. They have around 25 employees. Structural engineers deal with the construction while mechanical engineers create the schematics, and software engineers work with the various software programs.

Barge Cauthen & Associates is a professional firm that provides architectural, civil engineering, construction planning and management services to both the private and public sectors. They focus on not just designing buildings but also designing driveways, roadways and landscaping. A large portion of their employee staff consists of civil engineers.
