  • Participants in the Pre-Health Professions Institute have garnered an acceptance rate to medical school twice the state and national average over several decades.
  • More than 40 percent of undergraduate majors are engaged in research; the majority of projects involve students working directly with faculty. Students have the opportunity to apply for research funding to support their own projects through the Science and Engineering Research Center.
  • The Institute of Child Development is a worldwide leader, providing innovative curriculum and instruction to assist parents and professionals in the care and treatment of vulnerable children.
  • Faculty have been awarded millions of research dollars for investigating child development, galaxy mapping, sustainability, wind energy, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, mercury contamination, and the essential element phosphorus.
  • All engineering and computer science seniors participate in yearlong capstone design projects funded by industry sources.
  • Each year, more than 600,000 bats die as a result of contact with wind turbines in the United States. Principal investigators from TCU, Drs. Amanda Hale and Victoria Bennett, with the help of student researchers and a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, are making significant progress toward a solution to this problem.
