Texas Instruments' Commitment to Universities

Established in 1982, the TI University Program is a global program dedicated to supporting educators, researchers and students in facilitating the inclusion of TI analog and embedded processing in engineering classrooms, teaching and research labs, textbooks, design projects and course curricula.

By building relationships with educators, TI works to bridge the gap between the business and academic world. Incorporating TI technology into curriculum provides educators with the ability to teach real world concepts and complement this with a unique hands-on learning experience utilizing TI tools, making it more exciting, relevant and valuable to the student.

Working with TI increases the knowledge base of future engineers so they interact with industry-standard technology before they graduate. TI helps develop the skills needed to tackle tomorrow's most challenging problems. By providing students access to the largest and most advanced analog and embedded processing portfolio, the TI University Program provides the tools necessary to inspire innovation and take engineering concepts from the book to the breadboard.

  • Today, the TI University Program works with more than 350,000 students annually.
  • Over 4,000 teaching labs utilizing TI technology have been established.
  • The TI University Program runs multiple annual design contests in various regions of the world, reaching over 35,000 students each year.
  • TI technology is present in 350 textbooks and 10 languages, worldwide.
TI is happy to have a Corporate Advisory Council member to work with ECEDHA and collaborate around the technologies and trends that impact ECE education today.
