MISSION: PRACTICAL INGENUITY
Engineers and technologists design, create, and invent things that make a difference in people’s everyday lives. They are never bored and dream up ways to use their knowledge to make things better, faster, safer, or more efficient. Engineers and technologists work with other smart creative people like animators, physicists, astronomers, chemists, physicians, architects, biologists, environmentalists, and meteorologists. Engineering and technology is essential to our health, happiness, and safety.
VISION: CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
Engineers and technologists are curious. They ask questions, “How does it work?”, “Where does it go?”, “What will happen if?” They are nimble and quick, able to think on their feet and work wonders using the tools and technologies available to them.
Engineering and technology could not be more relevant. Our society is becoming increasingly complex. We must provide more food and energy for a rapidly growing population, and we must limit damage to the environment in the process. Engineering and technology will play a big role in meeting these challenges.
Engineering and technology is good for our economy. Its big business and provides millions of jobs. Making Texas stronger, safer, and more competitive, engineering and technology makes a world of difference and improves people’s lives in concrete, meaningful ways.
