To better capture the combined resources of the university, UT Austin launched Texas Computing, an initiative geared at making the assets and linkages among departments and research centers more apparent.
The effort is led by six units, housed across numerous colleges at the University: Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, the School of Information, the Oden Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, the Department of Statistics & Data Science, and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).
Supercomputing, robotics and AI, and computational health are just a few of the areas where Texas Computing offers unparalleled expertise. Other areas of computing strength include human-computer interaction, cybersecurity, and energy and environmental research.
The individual units contributing to Texas Computing’s world-class research already attract investments from many of the top companies and philanthropic organizations in the world. But the launch of a more coordinated entity intends to draw further industry-academia partnerships, spurring advances in computing while training the next-generation of leaders.
