How TI Shows the Love

Each year, TI hosts a UF Gator Day in Dallas, and sends a team of recruiters to UF’s job fair in Gainesville.

What TI Gators Say

“It is clear the Gator Nation is well represented at TI. Walking down the hallways I can always see a flag or a fellow alum saying, ‘Go Gators!’ Also, the number of Gator license plates in the parking lot is amazing.” - Rob Taylor (BSEE ’02, MS ’04), manager of Power Design Services, Industrial and Personal Electronics, and a UF Alumni Association Board of Directors member.

Why UF?

“We like hiring UF graduates because of their diversity of thought, critical thinking skills and problem-solving capabilities. Those skills are assets at TI and reflect our company’s culture. We are building semiconductors for a rapidly changing world, and our ability to continue developing innovative solutions will define our future success. Together with Gators, we are redefining what is possible.” - Steve Lambouses, vice president and general manager of the High Voltage Power Business Unit
