In an economy fueled by human capital and creativity, companies look to top universities for well-educated, work-ready graduates.

Today, more than 80 percent of our graduates earn degrees in science, engineering or business.

Our students compete with the best. The average SAT score for entering freshmen is among the highest of any Texas public university. And our undergraduate student profile matches or exceeds the quality of the nation’s best research universities.

From Silicon Valley to Austin’s technology cluster to Richardson’s Telecom Corridor area, university-corporate collaborations are fueling the innovation age. Successful partnerships typically start with recruiting, research and professional development, but grow into broader and deeper engagements that include serving on advisory councils, presenting guest lectures, providing company tours, serving as a mentor, hosting alumni events, engaging with student societies, investing in scholarships and fellowships, and offering corporate-sponsored or corporate-funded student projects.
