Inside the EERC
Inside this transformative facility, students will engage in hands-on projects and gain the skills necessary to succeed in diverse careers. Researchers will push boundaries to advance and develop new technologies. And thought leaders across disciplines will work together to find solutions to society's most critical challenges.
Advancing Engineering Education
Experience is the best teacher, especially for future engineering leaders. Inside the EERC’s state-of-the-art teaching and project labs, Texas Engineering students will learn by doing. Whether they are tackling a project for class or on their own, students will hone their creative and analytical problem-solving skills while bringing their ideas to life.
Conducting Breakthrough Research
Texas Engineering faculty are dedicated to finding solutions that will improve lives throughout the world. The labs, resources and equipment inside the EERC will allow researchers to further advance their research. The EERC will help provide even more opportunities for partnerships across engineering, business and technology.
Cultivating Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration
Engineers today must do more than develop technical solutions — they must lead and work together on teams to implement those solutions in the most impactful way. Serving as a hub to connect thought leaders across industries and institutions, the EERC will ignite creativity and collaboration among students, faculty and staff.
Launching Next-Generation Leaders
The industry demands a new type of engineer, one more broadly capable than ever before. With enhanced opportunities and spaces inside the EERC, the Cockrell School will propel next-generation engineers who take their 21st-century skills and apply them to solving real-world problems.
Greeting anyone walking through the EERC, the atrium will serve as a hub for sharing and cultivating ideas on the UT Austin campus.
