A $235 million research budget in 1997-98 helped UT Austin investigators explore everything from ancient Mayan hieroglyphics to robots performing tasks too hazardous for humans. Our research facilities are among the best in the United States. Eighty-seven organized research units are complemented by interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research programs.
Our facilities include the J. J. Pickle Research Campus - a 475-acre tract that houses 21 science, engineering and archeology laboratories - and extensive computer facilities. These include access to mainframe terminals, microcomputers and a Cray T3E supercomputer linked on a high-speed communications network. All of these computers are available to academic departments and research centers, as well as to faculty, staff and students.
