Entrepreneurship Institute Wins Tech Titan Award

Dallas, TX | Posted on September 29th, 2008

Sponsored by the Metroplex Technology Business Council (MTBC), Tech Titans is an annual contest that recognizes local advances in technology.

"We are pleased and honored to have been recognized by the Tech Titans program," said IIE Executive Director and School of Management faculty member Joseph C. Picken, Ph.D. "The institute's accomplishments have been a team effort over the past two years, involving representatives of every school of the university and supported by an outstanding advisory board."

The advocate award, according the MTBC Web site, "recognizes a technology service provider for outstanding leadership in the community by assisting, enabling or accelerating the performance of its technology clients."

IIE—which is a collaborative initiative of all seven UT Dallas schools—was also a finalist in the 2008 Tech Titans of the Future category, as was UT Dallas' George A. Jeffrey NanoExplorers program in the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute.

The future award recognizes educational programs designed to address "the gap in the student pipeline in technology disciplines and/or educational programs … whose purpose is to provide qualified graduates to the technology industry," the MTBC Web site says.
