The Heath Integrated Business and Engineering Program is a cohort program that brings together an elite group of students from Tickle College of Engineering and Haslam College of Business to work together and share key learning, networking, and mentoring experiences. Students will develop a deeper understanding of both disciplines and how they work together in real enterprises to create value.

Application Process Timeline

Applications are accepted from first-year students in their second semester, starting in December through January. The Heath IBEP Selection Committee, consisting of individuals from both Haslam and Tickle, meet to evaluate applicants in February. Finalists will be contacted for an in-person interview in early March. Interviews will last for the month of March and then the Selection Committee will meet to make final selections. Notifications will be sent mid-April. Students selected will formally begin the program in fall of the sophomore year.

Applications for the 2022 Cohort are now closed. Check back later to apply for the 2023 Cohort.

Admission Criteria

The admissions committee from both Haslam College of Business and Tickle College of Engineering review the following materials and select finalists to interview:

  • Essay questions
  • Student resume

Admission into the program provides scholarship awards contingent on continued participation in the program and academic performance, including but not limited to maintenance of a minimum 3.25 GPA. To be eligible to receive scholarship awards, students must apply for the Continuing Student Undergraduate Scholarship by February 1, 2019. If for any reason students decide to withdraw from the program or are dismissed from the program, their Heath IBEP scholarship awards may be rescinded.
