Technology Integration

Technical Drawing of Classroom

The Technology Integration team provides complete integrated technology solutions to over fifty different Colleges, Schools, and units across campus.

From basic remodels to large multi-phase capital projects spanning years, like the Dell Medical School, we work closely with owners, project management, and architectural teams, shepherding complex projects through consultation, design, purchasing, construction, installation, and commissioning.

Our staff also partners with end users and faculty to develop custom control system programming, interfaces, training, and documentation for over six hundred presentation and collaboration systems across campus, ensuring the successful use of technology to deliver over one hundred and fifty thousand hours of instruction a semester.
