Letter from the Director

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Knoxville. The faculty and I are pleased that you have chosen to pursue your education here. We will strive to provide you with a learning environment that is challenging, yet supportive of your personal interests and needs. We want you to succeed while you are here, and equally important, we want to prepare you for your life and the world of work.

You will find our faculty, staff, and administration ready to help you through your college experience in any way that we can. I am sure that you will find that the small class sizes and personalized instruction will make this journey meaningful and enjoyable. This, coupled with an emphasis on building competencies through hands-on experience, will better prepare you to "hit the ground running" when you gain employment following graduation.

Our high placement rates are a direct result of the quality of instruction coupled with the relationship that we enjoy with our many business and industry partners. We’re proud of the fact that 93% of our grads are placed in the field of study and 97% Licensure Pass Rate.

With our credit transfer program, your education doesn’t have to stop when you graduate. You’ll always have the option to advance in your career and expand your education by transferring your TCATK diploma to area community colleges.

Again, we thank you for being part of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Knoxville community!
