Educational and research establishment


Founded in 1861 as the Territorial University of Washington, University of Washington, or UDub, is one of the oldest universities on the West Coast although it had a rocky start and was forced to close three times due to lack of students or lack of funding.

The College of Engineering spawned 44 startups between 2014-2019 and has access to a startup accelerator program.
