University of Tennessee Knoxville

Science is always in the spotlight at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, a land-grant institution and the state's flagship research campus.  Recent research might include searching for potential habitats for life on Mars, developing an autotaxin  inhibitor to fight cancer, designing a car for the DOE EcoCAR 2 competition, determining  the boundaries of the nuclear chart or developing “Living Light”, a net-zero energy home for DOE’s Solar Decathlon. UTK is situated in an ideal environment for research. It has a 60-year-old partnership with DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where young scientists have access to state-of-the-art research tools, the world’s leading center for neutron science and some of the world’s fastest supercomputers.  UT’s famous forensic research also benefits from a partnership with DOE’s  Y-12 National Security Complex.  Cross-disciplinary teams are nurtured by the UT-ORNL Science Alliance.

This is why DOE shines their spotlight on the University of Tennessee Knoxville.  This and so much more. 


Very good Reasons ...

These are the reasons why I would like to come to Tennessee to study there.
