Excellence in research and teaching is at the core of our mission.

Moreover, we are home to a talented group of professional track and postdoctoral faculty, and a large and diverse population of highly motivated and talented graduate students. Strengths in our research program include many areas in pure and applied mathematics, as well as interdisciplinary fields intersecting engineering, neuroscience, computer science, medicine, finance, and natural sciences, among others.

As the flagship public university in Texas, a core part of our mission is the education of undergraduate students from all over this large and varied state, in an inclusive and supportive environment. Austin, the capital of Texas, is well known for its high quality of living, its thriving economy, and for being a center for high-technology industry, including companies such as Amazon, AMD, Apple, Applied Materials, AT&T, Dell, Google, IBM, National Instruments, and Samsung.
