University of Tennessee

The University of Tennessee was first named like this in 1840, but in its origins in 1794 it was known as Blount College and it was no religious. Nowadays it counts with 11 colleges and around 28000 students and it offers more than 300 degree programs. The University of Tennessee has a high reputation in the research field: it counts with leading researchers such as Harry McSween (study of meteorites) or Barry T. Rouse (NIH-funded studies on the herpes simplex virus (HSV)). They also have a good reputation thanks to their agricultural research programs. UT Knoxville operates the most powerful U.S. academic supercomputer: Kraken.
