Research Labs in Operations Research / Industrial EngineeringORIE Area Research Requirements. Both master's and doctoral students are expected to establish a relationship with a ORIE Area Faculty member for supervision of their research within their first semester in the graduate program.
The Mechanical Engineering Department provides the ORIE Area with an abundance of Research Resources and Research Facilities. The Department, along with the entire Cockrell School of Engineering and the University of Texas at Austin are recognized as premier research institutions in the world. The cornerstone of our Department is the excellent research talent marshalled here.
Our primary facilities are located on campus in the ten-story Engineering Teaching Center II and on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus. These resources offer everything from wood shops to electron micropes, and microcomputers to an active teaching nuclear reactor.
