Facilities and Building

Joseph E. Johnson Engineering and Physical Sciences Building is the home to the main offices of the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences; It also houses two full academic departments at UT Martin, the Department of Engineering and the Department of Chemistry and Physics. The geology and geography offices and labs are housed in this building; also some of the offices of the Department of Visual & Theatre Arts is located in this building.



Although it is essentially one building, Johnson EPS is actually made up of two integrated structures that were constructed at different times. The east-side (quad-side) of the building was built in the early 1960s; the west side and interconnecting features were added about a five years later. Unfortunately, little effort was made at the time for the addition to match its exterior design with that of the original structure. The building was dedicated to former University of Tennessee President Joseph E. Johnson in 1999.


The Department of Chemistry & Physics' main office is located in Room 319. The chemistry faculty offices and labs are located on the third floor, while some classrooms are located on either the second or first floor. The physics faculty offices are located in the 222 suite and their classrooms and labs are also on the west side of the second floor.
