Bold Is... nurturing disruptive innovation
UTSA's Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII) is a public-private partnership supported by the Department of Energy. CyManII is helping Texan and American manufacturers protect their supply chains from cyberattacks and become more energy-efficient to secure global competitiveness.
"UT System selected UTSA to lead the CyManII project due to the university's well-known strengths in cybersecurity and the visionary leadership of its president, Dr. Taylor Eighmy. This groundbreaking endeavor—over 50 organizations strong—has UT System's full endorsement and the absolute confidence of my leadership team."
— James B. Milliken, Chancellor of UT System
Bold Is... playing the game differently
A POWERFUL DATA INTELLIGENCE ECOSYSTEM Supporting San Antonio, Texas and the Nation
UTSA has designed a data and innovation ecosystem unlike any other – the first of its kind in Texas. We have expanded our Downtown Campus with San Pedro I, which houses the School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center. A sister building, San Pedro II is under construction and will serve as a hub for Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Careers.
Opened in January 2023, UTSA’s School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center hosts over 400 students and serves as the home of 30 world-class faculty members. Its 84,500 square feet of classroom, laboratory and research space supports science, engineering, technology, business, and more future-focused programs in the heart of San Antonio.
UTSA’s National Security Collaboration Center brings together more than 50 partners in government, industry and academia to tackle our nation’s escalating cybersecurity threats.
One example of the Center’s growing collaboration activity is demonstrated by its connection with Port San Antonio, a 1,900-acre technology and innovation campus. UTSA serves as the Port’s principal academic partner, helping both organizations strengthen their collective IT and cybersecurity expertise.
With the support of a generous grant, UTSA has invested in a broad range of Dell Technologies infrastructure solutions - including servers, storage, networking and data protection - that are having a profound impact on the UTSA research enterprise, particularly in cybersecurity and data science.
