Areas for Partnership and Support

Scholarships and Fellowships

With corporate and donor support, the Cockrell School is able to provide scholarships and fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students, offering crucial funding that can change the course of a student's academic path. These scholarships and fellowships increase the quality and retention of students enrolled in the school and allow companies to make a difference in the lives and careers of engineering students.

Student Organizations and Leadership Programs

Companies can support specific student organizations, community-building activities and other events that enhance the extracurricular experiences of Texas Engineering students. Donations of time and mentorship help provide students with insight into real-world scenarios and problem-solving to further develop their leadership, analytical thinking and interpersonal communication skills.

Student Projects

Corporate partners often serve as mentors, judges and facilitators of Texas Engineering student projects — from semesterly capstone design projects in which students are given real-world problems to solve to student-led makeathon competitions. This support encourages more students to immerse themselves in projects early on and helps provide a foundation of hands-on learning and team-based, creative problem-solving.

Study Abroad

Today's generation of young engineers are worldly, understanding what it means to be global leaders by broadening their perspectives, knowledge and cultural awareness. Three times as many Texas Engineering students study abroad now as compared to 10 years ago. Corporate support helps the Cockrell School organize more of these global experiences for more students.
