Research is a priority for the campus. We consider effective teaching and faculty involvement in scholarship, research, and creative activities as interdependent. Our goal is to foster your intellectual growth and application of your new knowledge. To this end, graduate faculty members involve students in their research on a regular basis.
For example, master’s students in Environmental Science study the interaction of water quality on fish and mammals; MBA students manage financial portfolios; English students explore the rhetoric of media; doctoral students in Learning and Leadership analyze assessment models; and doctoral students in Computational Engineering engage in studies of drag resistance. See titles of recent thesis and dissertation manuscripts.
The Graduate School sponsors an annual research day where students present posters and papers for critique by peers, faculty, and community experts. Awards are presented for outstanding contributions.
To enhance research efforts on campus, the University received last year over $13 million in external funding.

Research and Engagement
Unique to our campus and internationally recognized for its pioneering work is the National SimCenter, a computational engineering research and education center that specializes in high-fidelity, physics-based computational modeling and simulation. SimCenter researchers use high-performance supercomputing to solve physical problems that arise in engineering analysis and design applications from any engineering discipline.
The National SimCenter is expanding and adapting its technology base to additional research areas that are vital to the nation’s long-term security and economic well being. These areas include solid and fluid mechanics, electromagnetics, energy and mass transport, chemical reactions, and materials science. The National SimCenter has also opened a new Alternative Energy Laboratory devoted to fuel-cell experiments.
Another research partner on campus advances clean transportation technologies to promote a healthy environment and energy independence through research, education and technology transfer.
The Hamilton County Center for Entrepreneurial Growth, designed to help high-tech start ups move rapidly and successfully from idea to successful implementation, is also located on UTC’s campus.
Tenth Annual Graduate Research Day
Aligning research interests with career goals inspires UTC graduate students to achieve. These students found a graduate program at UTC that challenged them, engaged them in a powerful way to network and moved them closer to realizing their professional dreams.
Students in the twenty-two master’s and doctoral degree programs were invited to submit their project, thesis, and dissertation research.
