It’s been a busy spring on Rocky Top, and as the semester draws to a close, I feel fortunate to be surrounded by a talented collection of faculty, staff, and students. Add in our 29,000 alumni world-wide, and the Tickle College of Engineering is a special place working to build a better future for all of us.
The opening of the Zeanah Engineering Complex (ZEC) and a large investment from the campus have positioned the college for a surge in the quality of our programs and impact of our research. As an initial phase, we plan to strategically invest in specific research areas that will position our faculty and students to be on the cutting edge of discovery.
The college remains committed to providing the tools, education, and environment that produce outcomes that positively impact lives. That’s what engineers do—we conceive of, design, build, and maintain things which improve people’s lives. What a fantastic profession to be a part of. I remain honored to represent such an amazing college and want to thank all the alumni that have chosen to support TCE.
If you have not been back to campus lately, I welcome a visit. From robot food delivery to the new ZEC, I am sure you will see and feel the positive momentum. If you are thinking of continuing your own education, I invite you to take a look at what the TCE is offering. This fall our new online MS in Computer Science is launching, with more new programs and upgrades to existing programs to come.
I am happy to hear your ideas and recommendations to continue the growth and success of TCE in providing a world-class educational experience for our students and research which improves lives.
