The SMU Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering is committed to developing the new American engineer, one prepared to excel and lead in creating new economic opportunities while meeting the most difficult challenges facing society. The Lyle School maintains a steadfast focus on using engineering to address important issues both at home and around the world.

In the United States, Deloitte LLP and its subsidiaries have 45,000 professionals with a single focus: serving our clients and helping them solve their toughest problems. We work in four key business areas — audit, financial advisory, tax and consulting — but our real strength comes from combining the talents of those groups to address clients’ needs. Fortune and BusinessWeek consistently rank our organization among the best places to work, which is good news for our talent and our clients alike. When the best people tackle the most compelling challenges, everyone wins. “Deloitte” is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL), a UK private company limited by guarantee. Each member firm provides services in a particular geographic area and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates.


The Beck Group was founded in 1912 and has developed into a full-service builder with international reach. Beck's primary focus is cultivating long-term relationships by offering complete real estate solutions. Beck's multi-faceted structure enables it to better serve clients. Because we are developers, we are more knowledgeable architects. "Because we are architects, we are contractors who better understand the nuances of design. And because we are contractors, we understand the implications of decisions made throughout each project. By bringing together the knowledge base of all these disciplines, we provide a better total solution. Each project team possesses the integrated skills required to bring a vision to reality–even when only one of our services is applied. Our clients benefit from our total knowledge of the project process to best suit their specific needs." Beck maintains a team of over 450 working employees, over 40 percent of whom are LEED® Accredited Professionals, working among a network of offices in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas (headquarters), Denver, Fort Worth, Mexico City, San Antonio and Tampa.


The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people. In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 7,190 people in more than 120 countries continues to help some 36.4 million persons.
