Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science

The Jonsson School is the precocious progeny of a university that is itself a youngster. In just 25 years—probably within your life, and perhaps within your memory—we have exploded from a visionary idea to a school on the leading edge of nonstop discovery.

Since the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science was born, technology has made exponential advances…and so have we. In fact, the Jonsson School has helped fuel this amazing new world of technology that even our visionary founders barely imagined. Carbon nanotubes, micro-electro-mechanical systems, wireless networking, cybersecurity, organic electronics—these are just a handful of the cutting-edge technologies our brilliant faculty and students are advancing through their research.

Expanding our influence

Already, we are recognized for excellence in nano- and micro-electronics, analog engineering, networks and telecommunications, software engineering, computer and intelligent systems, and algorithms and applications. In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked the Jonsson School 71st among the best graduate engineering programs. In Texas, only The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University and Rice University ranked higher. We have more than doubled our outside research funding since 2003 to more than $47 million a year—and we plan to nearly double it again by 2020, topping $60 million.

Now we are expanding into new areas of excellence, achieving growing influence in bioengineering, mechanical engineering, and systems engineering and management. We will become one of the top schools of engineering and computer science in the United States and one of the great research engineering schools in the world.

Invest in the future

Our path to Tier One is clear. We need chairs and professorships to attract the best and brightest faculty. We need graduate fellowships and undergraduate scholarships so we can compete with other schools for the most promising students. We need world-class facilities and equipment so these dedicated faculty and students have the tools to engineer the future. With your support, we can seize the opportunities that will shape our future.
