The Texas A&M System Technology Commercialization is Industry’s Connection to the A&M System. The TTC provides the link between the laboratories where innovative new technologies are being developed and industry partners that will bring them to fruition as a product.

The TTC protects these new innovations, developed by A&M System researchers, through patents and copyrights and seeks to transfer the intellectual property to industry by royalty-bearing license agreements for commercial products that result in economic development and public benefit.

The TTC interacts with hundreds of companies each year as it seeks to find commercial partners to commercialize A&M System innovations. As a result, more than 700 license agreements have been executed since the TTC was established in 1992.
