Greetings from the beautiful campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga!
As we ready for the arrival of spring, we have had an unseasonable amount of rain in Chattanooga. Just as the late winter rain will usher in a new season, the new semester has brought our students, staff, faculty and alumni recognitions and opportunities to excel. Some of those opportunities and accomplishments are featured in this issue of eNews.
You will find stories of a freshmen design team making community impact at the Open Arms Care Facility, students and faculty collaborating with newly established Erlanger Children’s Hospital to reduce costs and students learning to become entrepreneurs. You will also be glad to read about accomplishments of our alumni, a family of engineers and computer scientists and outreach activities the college hosted as part of the Engineer’s Week. I trust you will find these stories inspiring.
Lastly, please mark your calendars to attend the 2nd Annual Technology Symposium on Thursday, April 18 at the Downtown Library, starting at 9:00 am, lasting until 1:30 pm. We are excited to be partnering with the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, Chattanooga Library, CO.LAB, Enterprise Center, Public Education Foundation, Hamilton County Schools and River City Company to bring the event to the community. More than 100 student and faculty projects will be on display throughout the library – including outside. Also on display will be STEM projects from Hamilton County high schools. I hope to see you there.
Daniel Pack, Dean

Open arms music wall
Four UTC engineering students worked together for a class project to create a music wall for the Open Arms Care Facility. Patients can now walk down the halls and play music to their ears with interactive instruments to help bring joy to their day.
