UH Data Science Institute Receives $10 Million Boost from Hewlett Packard Enterprise
The University of Houston announced a new collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Friday, including a $10 million gift from HPE to the University. The gift from HPE will benefit the University’s Data Science Institute and include funding for a scholarship endowment, as well as both funding and equipment to enhance data science research activities.
HPE’s collaboration with the University is part of a larger movement that’s focused on accelerating the development of Houston’s innovation economy, led by organizations like Houston Exponential. The collaboration between HPE and UH will go beyond funding, with HPE leaders serving as lecturers for UH classes and UH researchers helping to solve complex problems for HPE customers. Students will work on research areas suggested by HPE, part of an effort to ensure students and faculty are focused on real-world problems.
The UH Data Science Institute will be renamed the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute (HPE DSI) in recognition of the alliance.
