Engineering Research Office

Greetings, and welcome to the Tickle College of Engineering Research Office (ERO) home page. Our mission is to provide faculty with proposal development and support services to facilitate faculty success with these submissions. The ERO staff assists with finding strategic funding opportunities, crafting persuasive proposal narratives, creating budgets and budget justifications, navigating internal and external submission processes, and serves as a liaison with the UT Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP). Developing, creating, and submitting a research proposal is a substantive and involved effort. Our goal is to enable faculty to focus on the intellectual content so that the best possible proposal can be put forward.

I encourage you to engage our staff early and often. We look forward to working with you.

Kind regards,

Bill Dunne
Associate Dean
