Elon Musk proposes Texas Institute of Technology & Science

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Friday that he’s considering launching a new university: the “Texas Institute of Technology & Science.”

It’s not clear how serious the mega-billionaire is, particularly considering the proposed school’s obscene acronym and Musk’s reputation for joking on Twitter — even to the point of violating securities laws.

That didn’t stop netizens from seizing on the tweet, propelling the proposed school’s acronym to Twitter’s top 25 trending list in the US on Friday.

Beyond jokes, Musk has a history of making raunchy acronyms in his business operations, including by planning the rollout of Tesla’s Models S, 3, X and Y vehicles to spell out S.3.X.Y. on the company’s website.

When one Twitter user asked whether he had secured funding for the university, Musk responded, “obv.”

That could have just been a nod to Musk’s 2018 tweet in which he said he had “funding secured” to take Tesla private at $420 a share, which sent the stock price soaring and eventually led to a settlement between Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission that was supposed to keep the mega-billionaire largely off Twitter.

In another follow-up tweet Friday morning, Musk said the proposed university would “have epic merch.”

Musk’s own feelings about university, though, have been lukewarm. He’s repeatedly derided the experience, saying last year that colleges are “for fun and to prove that you can do your chores, but they’re not for learning.”

He’s also said Tesla won’t have university requirements for jobs, “because that’s absurd.”

Musk — worth an estimated $302 billion — has been ramping up his presence and that of his companies in Texas.

Last year, he announced that he was personally moving to the Lone Star State — where there’s no personal income tax — and earlier this month he announced that his electric car company would move its headquarters to the Austin area as well.

Tesla will continue to expand its massive plant in Fremont, California, but Musk has said the company plans to begin production at its new factory in Austin next year.

Musk has sought to create a city near Starbase, SpaceX’s launch site in Texas.

Musk’s two other companies, SpaceX and The Boring Company, are both still based in Hawthorne, California.

But SpaceX’s launch site, dubbed Starbase, sits in southeast Texas, near Boca Chica, an unincorporated seaside village in Cameron County. Musk has sought to expand the Starbase and actually create an incorporated US city in the area.

And The Boring Company has previously hinted of a similar expansion to Texas by teasing job postings in the state.

And the San Antonio Express-News reported earlier this year that the company is in talks with San Antonio and Austin officials to create an underground transportation loop in Central Texas, like the one that opened this summer in Las Vegas.

Musk isn’t the only tech billionaire to expand his operations in

Texas A&M considers massive technology consolidation

Consultants on Monday recommended that Texas A&M centralize its information technology department and establish a central help desk to give leaders more information about services.

A restructuring of one of the country’s largest universities, outlined in a report published by two companies hired by the Texas A&M system in June — MGT Consulting and Martin+Crumpton — would have the institution halve the number of units in its IT department’s organizational chart. The guidance is in line with the report’s broader takeaways, including that the university needs to better organize its departments for efficiency and oversight.

“As a result [of decentralization], talent and financial resources are not used in a practical or transparent method, and students, faculty, and staff do not have complete clarity when seeking help from operational units,” the report reads. “A misalignment of oversight responsibilities has resulted in a duplication of efforts, ineffective initiatives, and unnecessary administrative burdens on faculty and staff.”

The news aligns with a broader trend at universities and colleges now reviewing their operations or undergoing strategic planning efforts. Virginia Tech recently employed Deloitte to review its IT and cybersecurity operations, which will include how the university balances departmental and central IT operations. University regents set a goal in University of Arizona President Robert Bobbins’s contract for finding “appropriate centralization” opportunities for departments including IT.

Texas A&M enrolls more than 70,000 students and operates at two branch campuses. According to its report, the firms surveyed more than 16,000 former Texas A&M students, current students, faculty, staff and deans, and they reviewed operations at peer universities and conducted interviews.

Consultants also recommended centralizing other departments — including human resources, finance and marketing — but IT was highlighted as one of the larger groups, employing 300 part-time liaisons. How the university chooses to adopt these recommendations affects workers, with consultants noting in the report that restructuring IT would highlight where there are inefficiencies and duplication. Leaders can reduce staffing over time, reinvesting the money into updating technology or infrastructure or redistributing workers to fill gaps, according to the report.

Centralization would involve pulling IT workers assigned to other areas, like research or student affairs, to work under a central IT department, and moving communications and finance for IT operations out to related departments. The proposed organizational chart streamlines units based on the centralization, grouping units under leaders, like an associate vice president for student and faculty systems or on-campus college support.

“Not only will this increase the effectiveness of Information Technology and create myriad efficiencies, but consolidation will also lead to improvements in the ability to manage campus-wide cybersecurity,” the report reads. “The effort to consolidate and centralize services and personnel will naturally lead to a more efficient organization. Cost savings should be reinvested into continuing to advance technology services and other critical issues, such as cybersecurity.”

The central help desk is proposed as part of the firms’ recommendation that Texas A&M collect more data on its everyday services, and the report notes “little data” was available
