Jan. 23, UTEP signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory to expand research opportunities for the UTEP community. Something UTEP is looking forward to with the new partnership is new internships and employment opportunities in certain fields such as energy, data science and quantum information.   

Brookhaven Lab will provide access to advanced research facilities and specialized equipment for faculty and students. Potentially, this kind of research development will open more doors since few universities have these possibilities and privileges. 

With UTEP’s ranking as an R1 University and its research programs having emphasis in aerospace, energy and biomedical sciences, the memorandum of understanding recently sign will strength the university’s research area. This will also build more professional relationships for the benefit of everybody involved. 

Brookhaven National Laboratory, located in Long Island, New York, is one of 10 national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the DOE’s Office of Science. It is also home to seven Nobel Prizes with awarded investigations for Structural and Mechanistic Studies of Ion Channel, the discovery of Muon Neutrino, and detection of Cosmis Neutrinos. Said memorandum of understanding will raise the prestige of UTEP as an R1 university, as well as better prepare the next generation of specialists and innovators  

“Long-term partnerships with national laboratories like Brookhaven become more important as we expand UTEP’s research portfolio and graduate more and more doctoral students,” said UTEP President Heather Wilson in a statement. “We look forward to working together.”  

UTEP being America’s leading Hispanic-serving university, more Latinos will be given the chance to develop and build a better future thanks to the Brookhaven Lab partnership. 

 As of right now, UTEP faculty is collaborating with members of the Chemistry Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Announcements from Brookhaven Lab team will be posted for UTEP students as time progresses.
