The Knoxville News Sentinel recently featured the newly-named Tickle College of Engineering, which appears to be on an upswing.
This year, the college ranked number 32 among engineering schools at public universities by U.S. News and World Report. It ranked No. 36 among graduate programs. Both are the highest rankings the college has ever had.
“Tickle’s latest gift only will make the school better,” said Dean Wayne Davis added.
The money will fund 32 new Tickle fellowships to recruit top graduate students, two new professorships and a team of professional advisors who will help guide students through their college careers.
