The institute is home to more than 80,000 square feet of laboratories featuring world-class facilities and instrumentation. Faculty and students perform foundational and applied research as well as conduct workforce development for the next-generation of experts. UTSI’s capabilities complement and are frequently teamed with UT Knoxville’s capabilities in advanced materials and manufacturing and in high-performance computing.

“UTSI can play an even greater role for the state as the cornerstone of an advanced technology ecosystem that can draw from the nearby technology-intensive Huntsville, Alabama, region,” said Schmisseur. “We can leverage our engagement there to promote the expansion of aerospace and defense industries in southern Tennessee and foster economic development.”
