The Reliability and Maintainability Engineering (RME) program from University of Tennessee Knoxville is a multidisciplinary program focuses on the use of management systems, analysis techniques and advanced condition-based and preventive technologies to identify, manage and eliminate failures leading to losses in system function. 


Master of Science Degree in RME

The Master of Science in Reliability and Maintainability Engineering degree from University of Tennessee Knoxville consists of thirty hours of graduate work in RME and may have a concentration in one of the traditional engineering academic departments. Thesis and non-thesis research options are available for students, and the program can be completed on campus or through real-time and interactive distance delivery.

The RME Master of Science and Graduate Certificate programs are offered both on campus and through distance education.

Distance education delivery provides motivated individuals with an opportunity to further their engineering education without having to attend traditional classes at the UT-Knoxville campus. Courses are delivered primarily through our dual delivery format in which local students and distance students attend the class together. This format allows distance students join in through the world-wide-web on a predetermined day and time for a real-time, interactive classroom learning experience.
