Welcome to the FedEx Institute of Technology

The FedEx Institute of Technology is an advanced technology and research organization that serves as the front door to the research infrastructure and innovation capabilities of the University of Memphis. It functions as a catalyst for interdisciplinary research and innovation in emerging technologies by supporting cross-campus research innovation clusters in areas such as intelligent systems, drones, cybersecurity testing, biologistics, autonomous vehicles, robotics, smart biomaterials, additive manufacturing and precision medicine. The Institute is also home to the University's intellectual property and patent repository which is the focal point of technology transfer and licensing operations. The Institute also supports regional community efforts to increase both the size and technical sophistication of the regional technology workforce. The University's Graduate School that serves appropriately 1,000 doctoral and 3,000 masters students in 118 graduate and research programs across campus is also located at the FedEx Institute of Technology. The Institute enjoys a unique innovation partnership with FedEx, which sponsors the Institute for advanced research purposes. The Institute is the central hub for efforts to maintain a cutting-edge innovative environment in the Mid-South region. It also offers training and collaboration opportunities in emerging technologies and related breakthrough concepts.

Technology Transfer

The Office of Technology Transfer, housed in the FedEx Institute, is where you'll hear about the next big phenomenon. We boldly invest in promising new innovations that have the potential to be breakthrough commercial products. We also license valuable intellectual property to local companies, clearing the way for them to exclusively develop cutting-edge technologies. We are a revenue generator for the University and the inventors that support and encourage development of new science and technology innovations. The work we do is exciting and far reaching — impacting the region's economy by influencing new business ventures, strengthening existing enterprises and fueling remarkable new research.

Corporate Engagement

Memphis is an idea city. It's an environment where people feel free to try all sorts of innovations. Memphis has the foundation for innovation and our University has the research capabilities. It takes both to make magic happen. The FedEx Institute is proud to serve as a gateway to introduce business leaders to the University's vast resources in research. Our corporate partnerships lead to groundbreaking collaborations with faculty and employment opportunities for students. We work closely with a wide contingent of corporate, government and non-profit leaders, decision makers and innovators throughout Memphis and Shelby County.
