East Tennessee State University Expand Engineering Laboratory Facilities
East Tennessee State University, which has a history of teaching engineering technology dating back to the 1930s, made the decision to expand the course offering in 2015 to include a BSc in General Engineering which combines courses from Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering. To teach the course they needed an engineering laboratory that had equipment to practically teach the principles of civil, and mechanical engineering. There were existing Electrical Engineering labs, to serve the BSc, in the electrical engineering technology program. After going out to bid, TecQuipment won, based on a balance between price and functionality of equipment.
With a complete basement floor renovation, new equipment from TecQuipment and the installation of high tech classroom equipment, the floor now boasts to be one of many high tech labs within the university.
