The Tickle College of Engineering (TCE) at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN will host TWO summer engineering programs for rising tenth and twelfth grade students during the summer of 2018. Each program is a one-week residential program for rising high school students. All students are encouraged to apply. For program information, dates, and deadlines; see the enclosed TCE Summer Program Flyer 2018.
- Engineering VOLunteers for Tenth Graders (eVOL10) = Rising tenth grade students live in a residence hall on the UT campus and engage in chemistry, ACT preparation, compete in engineering challenges, and tour an engineering industrial plant. Throughout the program, students team with each other to apply what was learned and work on an engineering design project.All eVOL10 applicants must have taken a standardized test, such as the ACT Aspire, ACT Residual, ACT, PSAT, or SAT.
- High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Twelfth Graders (HITES12) = Rising twelfth grade students live within a residence hall on campus, engage in hands-on engineering fundamentals activities, college life sessions, compete in engineering challenges, and tour an engineering industrial plant. Throughout the program, students team with each other to apply what was learned and work on an engineering design project. All applicants must have a minimum ACT math score of 25 (SAT math score of 590).
We are currently in the process of re-envisioning our programs, and we will not offer our Engineering VOLunteer for Rising Ninth Graders (eVOL9) and High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Eleventh Graders (HITES11) programs in the summer of 2018.
Our mission is to provide students who show an interest in engineering studies an early exposure to, and preparation for, scientific study and research. Hands-on activities will spark an interest in the world of engineering and allow students to explore career opportunities. Throughout the program, participants will be challenged to apply what they have learned in engineering competitions. All applications must be received by their deadlines.

We encourage your participation and support in identifying students that are interested to apply. Please forward the opportunity to guidance counselors, math/science faculty, students, parents, and administrators. If you should have any questions, please contact me.
