Cockrell School of Engineering

Next »« Previous

In 1894, a proud engineering program began at The University of Texas to train young people in the “mechanic arts,” the term used to describe engineering at the time. The importance of producing engineers was clear: Well-educated young people would apply the principles of science in practical ways to make life better for citizens, strengthen the industrial base, and grow the economy for society’s benefit.

Into its 11th decade and 50,000 graduates later, the Cockrell School of Engineering (CSE) continues to benefit Texas, the nation, and the world. Engaging learners each day in a journey of exploration, discovery, and innovation is the foundation of our excellence. World-renowned faculty and bright, inquisitive students drive our commitment to keep the Cockrell School of Engineering at the forefront of generating solutions to the most pressing challenges of the 21st century.
