Engineering Education and Research Center

Serving as a hub that connects thought leaders across disciplines, the EERC inspires creativity and collaboration and features research labs, student study spaces, a library, a café and a dedicated wing for engineering student and career services. Among the facility’s signature multidisciplinary spaces are:

  • National Instruments Student Project Center
    The centerpiece of the building, offering students 23,000 square feet of makerspaces for designing and building everything from solar cars and satellites to robots and biomedical sensors.
  • James J. and Miriam B. Mulva Conference Center and Auditorium
    The spacious conference rooms will provide a gathering place for faculty, students and other guests, and the stunning 299-seat auditorium will host visiting lecturers, seminars and workshops.
  • Texas Instruments Laboratories 
    State-of-the-art spaces where electrical and computer engineering undergraduate students utilize the latest technologies to develop sensors, wearable technologies and more.
  • Innovation Center 
    The Cockrell School’s first space dedicated to entrepreneurship training and commercialization programming, headed by Bob Metcalfe, professor in innovation and inventor of the Ethernet.
  • Anwar Family Learning Center 
    Hub for tutoring and studying and home of the McKinney Engineering Library, one of the top academic engineering libraries in the nation with a collection of over 165,000 volumes.


Microelectronics Research Center

Microelectronics Research Center at Pickle Research Campus

The MRC NNIN facilities include 12,000 sq. ft. of class 100 and class 1000 clean-room space for Si, III-V and soft materials processing. The clean room contains a JEOL-6000FS/E-based electron beam lithography system capable of 20nm resolution on masks, small substrate pieces up to 8" wafers. The e-beam system is also used to generate master for the Step and Flash imprint lithography equipment. The S-FIL is a nano-imprint scheme for patterning of features in sub-20nm regime with ability to perform layer-to-layer alignment through a transparent template to sub-tenth micron accuracy.



Applied Computational Engineering and Sciences Building

The Peter O’Donnell, Jr. Building (POB) for Applied Computational Engineering and Sciences, located on The University of Texas at Austin campus, is a state-of-the-art facility that supports interdisciplinary research and graduate study in computational science and engineering, mathematical modeling, applied mathematics, software engineering and computer visualization. Designed to attract outstanding students, scientists and engineers from around the world, the facility houses a 2900-square-foot visualization lab, bandwidth-intensive research space for 300 graduate students, electronic seminar and videoconferencing rooms and fully equipped offices for visiting researchers.



Texas Advanced Computing Center

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin is one of the leading centers of computational excellence in the United States. Located on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus, the center's mission is to enable discoveries that advance science and society through the application of advanced computing technologies.
