Mission Statement

"The mission of the Early Intervention and Mechanical Engineering (EIME) project is to significantly enhance the services provided to children with special needs in the region surrounding Tennessee Technological University (Upper Cumberland region). These enhanced services are provided through a mutually beneficial collaboration between early intervention and engineering at Tennessee Tech. The project leverages the significant engineering potential in our engineering students and the benefits of collaboration with the college of education and Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS), all located on the University. Further, extended collaboration with the surrounding k-12 schools has been undertaken."
