Students at Tennessee Tech get more than a top-notch education. They learn to be leaders in their chosen careers and lifelong learners.

Partnerships between students and faculty combine disciplines and ideas in multi-disciplinary projects and research. Outside the classroom, they learn about cultures across the globe, discover how to be good citizens through service organizations and dozens of student clubs, gain exposure to the arts and build friendships across ages, backgrounds, and interests.

Like our mascot, Awesome the golden eagle, Tennessee Tech students are focused on their studies, fearless in pursuing their goals and their future, and committed to the campus and global communities.

With an enrollment of more than 10,500 students, TTU offers more than 40 undergraduate and 20 graduate degrees across eight academic colleges and schools: Agriculture and Human Ecology, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Nursing.

At Tennessee Tech, learning isn’t contained within a classroom’s four walls. There’s a strong intellectual community, where faculty and students connect daily through research, discussion, and service.

Tennessee Tech is a place where student inventions leave the classroom to improve the lives of people with disabilities. Where we rally to help rebuild and repair communities when disasters strike. Where a variety of concerts, performances, and art festivals are a way of life. Where students can become exactly what they want to be.

Calling Tennessee Tech home, alumni leave our small town to change the world. Astronauts and entrepreneurs, artists and teachers developed the confidence in their abilities and education to tackle global issues and become leaders in their fields in Cookeville.

A town of about 30,000 people, Cookeville offers the best of rural and urban living. Centrally located among three of Tennessee’s largest cities, the campus is surrounded by lakes, state parks, mountains and rivers in one of the most ecologically diverse climates in the nation.

Nearly two-thirds of all students receive some form of financial aid, either from the state or federal government, the university, or private funds.

Tennessee Technological University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, master’s, specialist and doctoral degrees.
