The Texas A&M University System National Laboratories Office opened in 2018 to support the system’s role in the management of Los Alamos National Laboratory. The office works to expand engagement of system faculty and researchers, students and staff with the national laboratories.
The Texas A&M University System is one of the largest higher education systems in the nation, with an annual budget of $7.2 billion. Through its statewide network of 11 universities and eight state agencies, it educates more than 153,000 students and makes more than 23 million additional educational contacts through service and outreach programs annually. Systemwide research and development expenditures exceeded $1 billion in FY 2023.
The office is the primary point of engagement with all U.S. Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration laboratories, facilities, and sites. The National Laboratories Office builds connection between academia and the national labs through linking faculty and students with the labs, forming new research connections, developing research proposals, locating funding opportunities and enhancing the future employment pool for the national laboratories through student engagement.
The Texas A&M University System seeks partners who share its commitment to national security and welcomes collaborators from the U.S. government, industry, national labs, and other academic institutions.
