Not Your Typical Desert Town

Tucson, Arizona's tech corridor – well represented in aerospace and defense, bioscience, border technology, optics and photonics, and solar and renewable energy – is a hub for the entrepreneurially inclined grad student.

The city may be in a semi-arid region, which certainly lends to the UA College of Engineering’s expertise in water conservation and energy sustainability, but the Sonoran Desert – one of the most diverse desert ecosystems in the world – is anything but typical. Mountain ranges towering upwards of 9,000 feet surround the city of a half million, and many students and their families spend their free time hiking and biking the canyon floors and mountain trails. In town, a streetcar service connects the University to Fourth Avenue and downtown, where there are endless choices for dining, family and cultural events, nightlife, concerts and professional theater.
