TTU only Tennessee university receiving DOE funding for “Industrial Assessment Center”

A Tennessee Tech University (TTU) engineering program has received a $2.3 million dollar investment from the U.S. States Department of Energy, one of 32 universities across the nation selected to take part in the Department’s “Industrial Assessment Centers” program. The initiative offers no-cost energy efficiency recommendations to small and medium-sized manufacturers and water treatment facilities.

“Tennessee Tech is the only university in Tennessee that has had this Industrial Assessment Center for the past 15 years,” said Dr. Ethan Languri, TTU Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “We’ve just been selected for the next five years.  Tech has a history of providing amazing education in engineering and the results speak for themselves.”
