Translating Investment into 21st Century Innovation

Innovations from The Texas A&M University System agencies, like the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), save lives as well as dollars. Some 540,000 TTI-patented highway safety devices in use around the nation are credited with saving more than 10,000 lives.

Cited nationally for “tangible contributions to the public interest,” Texas A&M remains true to its land-grant mission. Texas A&M turns discovery into deeds, develops tools and expertise designed for real-world applications, and delivers products and services that improve the lives of Texans.
