The Faculty Technology Studio in the Cockrell School of Engineering provides high-quality instructional technology solutions that support teaching and research across our academic departments and research centers. Our team of trained videographers, producers, digital illustrators and animators, web developers and project managers works directly with faculty members and research scientists to provide helpful technology consultation and to develop resources tailored to their individual needs.

The Faculty Technology Studio is positioned at the intersection of technology and pedagogy, and we understand how to apply the best practices and technologies for each educational setting and situation. If you are a Texas Engineering faculty member, think of us as a toolkit for your classroom and lab. Whatever you need — from lecture capture to interactive simulations, and from web applications to video production — we can help you get it done.
