Shaping the Future of Engineering Today!

Fifty years ago, on February 7, 1964, the Tennessee State Board of Education accepted a resolution authorizing then-Memphis State University to accept a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Herff to establish a master’s degree program in engineering science. In May 1965, the Board approved an undergraduate engineering program – and so began the Herff College of Engineering.

The time has come for the Herff College of Engineering to secure our future as one of the nation’s leading destinations for both prospective engineering students and industry recruiters. As we celebrate our rich 50-year history of engineering education at the University of Memphis, we invite you to join us as we look to the next 50 years and continue to transform the educational experience of our students.
