20 UT ECE students were named recipients of awards in the form of scholarships and fellowships from Texas Instruments in a ceremony at The University of Texas at Austin on November 7, 2014. The TI Scholarships recognize electrical engineering students who excel academically, exhibit financial need or lead within their diverse student organizations. According to Laura Herriott of TI, "We are interested in electrical engineering students who are innovators – who are making the most of their time at UT to learn and grow -- and create world-changing technology." The scholarships target students with an interest in analog and RF design, semiconductors and related electrical engineering areas. Students selected for an award receive a scholarship for 2014-2015, along with encouragement to apply for available internships and full-time positions within TI.
TI looks for and encourages development of diverse engineering talent, the best and the brightest who constantly innovate the next generation of great technology to make the world safer, smarter, greener, healthier and more fun. TI has a long history of supporting students in the Cockrell School of Engineering, and since 2010, TI has grown their financial commitment to help our future engineering leaders through scholarships and fellowships and partnering with UT to develop students for a life-long career of innovation. TI has positively impacted the education of over 70 UT students through scholarships and fellowships over the past 4 years.
