TOMORROW IS WILDCAT COUNTRY
We’ve been through revolutions and technological advances throughout human history. The difference today is that it’s happening at an accelerated pace. And the lines between our physical, digital and biological worlds are blurring in ways we’ve never seen.

The University of Arizona provides students with hands-on learning, research opportunities and international partnerships, putting them at the leading edge of the next industrial revolution.
We are redefining the role of higher education in this new era.
