Real-World Skills Development
Every UT Austin undergraduate, regardless of major, graduates from UT with a broad education that prepares them to succeed in an ever-changing workforce. All students enrich their education with six innovative Skills and Experience Flags that prepare them to communicate effectively, engage in ethical decision-making and independent problem-solving, and understand the diverse, data-dense world around us.
Texas Career Engagement is committed to helping employers navigate and explore the interdisciplinary, diverse, and skilled talent across campus—whether that talent is highly visible, as with an academic major, or is less visible, as with students in programs that bridge the liberal arts and technology.
Employers seeking specific skills can increase the talent pipeline by targeting the academic disciplines where these skills are typically developed as well as areas that may not be well known. For example, if you are seeking students with business skills or business interests, consider non-business majors who are completing certificates and minors that supplement their academics with business specializations. Likewise, if you are seeking skills and interest in technology, consider non-computer science students with data, computational, and design skills that can round out your candidate pool.
Academic achievement programs, high impact creative research, interdisciplinary specializations, certificates, and experiential learning opportunities provide UT students with an unmatched academic experience and position them to be world-changers. Our innovative undergraduate coursework equips students with career competencies needed for success in an ever-evolving workforce by emphasizing ethical decision making, cultural diversity, critical thinking, and quantitative reasoning. Our graduate students and scholars are involved in cutting-edge research and applied learning technologies that can enhance your organization’s mission and goals.
Education at UT Austin extends well beyond our classrooms, labs, and libraries. We have a dynamic culture of experiential learning that provides students the opportunities and tools to engage in the practical application of academic learning to real-world experiences. Our students participate in internships, co-ops, research, leadership, and service learning, resulting in a well-rounded talent pool. Global mobility is also an important part of the Longhorn experience; students build cultural fluency through international education through more than 400 global programs in 100 different countries and nationally recognized centers.
