TTI will partner with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) to lead the engineering and scientific aspects of the project and will engage other Texas A&M colleges to aid in the social, planning or policy aspects of technology deployments.
We believe the following elements combine to make an exceptional value proposition for partnering with Texas A&M on this initiative.
The Texas A&M campus is a robust model of the emerging class of mega-campuses that provide access to large numbers of students while also maintaining their traditional stature as high-end research institutions.
Influencing the Sales Channel
By demonstrating on the Texas A&M campus, your company and product have access to a vast marketplace of potential future sales on A&M System (and partner) campuses, entry paths to state and national purchasing contracts, and future sales capability to cite Texas A&M demonstration and evaluation.
Although direct payment for these demonstrations is not possible, Texas A&M has a number of marketing outreach components planned for both the initiative at large and individual demonstrations.
Research and Development
Technology demonstrations on campus can reduce research and development (R&D) time and costs via student involvement and the inclusion of expertise from across campus.
The process of performing test-bed research and/or demonstrations can be a time-consuming process with a myriad of requirements.
The initiative and demonstrations provide a unique opportunity to explore and test synergies and interoperability with other companies and products.
Affiliation with Agencies of National Stature
By working with Texas A&M and its partners on demonstrations, your company has access to faculty and staff at multiple agencies that can help reduce your R&D time, enhance your products, and increase your exposure.
Access to Students
The Texas A&M College of Engineering is one of the largest in the country with more than 15,000 students currently, with a target of growing to 25,000 students by 2025.
