Texas Tech University

Welcome to the Community

In the Whitacre College of Engineering, we are building a "Community of Scholars." More than just a group of individual students, faculty, staff, and alumni, we are working together to engineer a better world now and for the future.

Blending math, science, and creative thinking, our engineering students and alumni design solutions that transform the world. From building cities to advancing healthcare, from saving the environment to expanding humanity's knowledge of the cosmos, Texas Tech engineers are making their mark on society.

Located in a true college-town setting, Texas Tech University’s Whitacre College of Engineering is an internationally recognized research institution ranked among the best in the country. Here, award-winning faculty, intimate classes, the International Experience initiative, and hands-on internships combine with a true community of scholars to empower students with the knowledge and experience needed to hit the ground running.
