Introducing our Engineering Vols

Engineering Vols are a part of a collaborative, dynamic, student-focused community. They participate in engaging research experiences, go on career advancing co-ops and internships, and have a community of faculty, advisors, and students here to provide mentoring and support to help them graduate with the confidence and skills needed to start a fulfilling career or to go on to graduate school.

Our students are encouraged to explore their pursuits and passions no matter where that leads them. Our Engineering Vols family includes musicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, and restauranteurs. From students who compete on the world stage in downhill biking to alumni who have opened breweries, “engineer” is truly just one word to describe who you will be once you arrive on campus.
