First Heath IBEP Cohort Graduates with Honors

By Scott McNutt.

The inaugural Heath Integrated Business and Engineering Program (Heath IBEP) cohort, which launched the program in 2017 in UT’s Haslam College of Business and Tickle College of Engineering, built a mountain of accomplishments before graduating last year.

Students in the first cohort to graduate are leaders in every respect. Trailblazers in a new, hybrid academic undertaking, innovators with our partner companies, go-getters in a daunting job market. I can’t wait to see where their leadership takes them next.
