Welcome to the UTSI

UTSI Research

For more than 40 years, research has been the heartbeat of The University of Tennessee Space Institute. Our current work revolves around active programs in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, aviation systems, engineering management, and a variety of other activities.  In addition, we are giving extra attention now, and in the future, to research in materials and propulsion.

We encourage you to take the time to see what UTSI has to offer. The Institute's faculty, staff and students are making a difference for our community, state and nation. Within several diverse research areas, faculty-student teams of aerospace engineers, mathematicians, mechanical engineers, physicists, electrical engineers, and metallurgists perform problem-oriented, multidisciplinary research. Perhaps UTSI could be a part of your future.
