Mission

The mission of the College of Engineering is to meet the needs of industry and society by:

  • Producing highly competent graduates at the baccalaureate, master's and doctoral levels,
  • Performing state-of-the-art research in the disciplines comprising the diverse fields of engineering, and
  • Providing service to the community and engineering profession through outreach programs, involvement in professional societies, consulting, and interaction with industry and government.

History and Overview

The College of Engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington is the third largest engineering college in Texas, and is the largest and most comprehensive in North Central Texas, with over 3,300 students and 150 faculty members in eight disciplines. Additionally, there are more than 20 research centers producing more than $20 million in research for government and private industry.

The engineering program at UT Arlington evolved from a two-year program that was established at North Texas Agricultural College during the 1930s and 1940s. North Texas Agricultural College became Arlington State College, and in 1959 approval was given to begin a four-year engineering program. In 1965, Arlington State College joined The University of Texas System as The University of Texas at Arlington, and the first master's degree program in engineering was approved. The first Ph.D. program in engineering was added in 1969. Construction of the Engineering Laboratory Building in 1977, the Engineering Annex in 1980, the Automation & Robotics Research Institute (ARRI) in 1987, Nedderman Hall in 1988, the Nanotechnology Research and Teaching Facility in 2001 and the Engineering Office Buildings East and West in 2003 provided additional classroom and research laboratory space for the continued growth of the College of Engineering. Currently, four buildings are in the construction or planning stages: an Engineering Research Building adjoining the main engineering buildings, an expansion of the Engineering Laboratory Building, the Civil Engineering Laboratory Building, and the Center for Structural Engineering Research.

The college is a leader in distance education, providing a convenient way for working engineers to pursue a master's degree. Starting with TAGER, a dedicated microwave communications link in 1975, courses are now distributed on the Internet in streaming video, providing a very convenient access to students. More information can be found at www.uta.edu/engineering/distance/.

Research Interests of the Faculty

There is an excellent equipment infrastructure to support research in:

  • nanotechnology
  • microelectronics and MEMS
  • robotics and manufacturing
  • materials and their characterization
  • pervasive computing
  • intelligent systems
  • software engineering
  • networking
  • embedded systems
  • database systems
  • multimedia systems
  • bioinformatics
  • information technology
  • security
  • transportation systems
  • hydrology and hydraulics systems
  • geotechnical engineering
  • environmental engineering
  • solid mechanics
  • structural analysis
  • aerodynamics
  • flight mechanics and control
  • electronic packaging
  • energy systems
  • optics
  • statistics and optimizations
  • and many more.

There are two formal research centers, the Automation & Robotics Research Institute (ARRI) and the Nanotechnology Research and Teaching Facility (NRTF), with the directors reporting to the Dean of Engineering.

Many College of Engineering faculty members collaborate with professors and researchers in other colleges at UT Arlington and other institutions in the state, around the U.S., and around the world. Therefore, for those interested in doing research as part of graduate training, there are many opportunities to work on research projects that are either within the home department or interdisciplinary with other departments.

Programs

Graduate work in engineering at UT Arlington may lead to the master of science or doctor of philosophy in the following programs:

Master's degree programs are available in:

  • Logistics
  • Engineering Management
  • Software Engineering
  • Systems Engineering

Graduate work leading to a practice-oriented master's degree usually requires a design project, report, internship or additional coursework. Details are given in the individual program descriptions that follow.

The program in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is under the auspices of both the College of Engineering and the College of Science. Biomedical Engineering is a joint program of the UT Arlington Bioengineering Department in association with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The Master of Science in Logistics and Master of Science in Engineering Management are offered in partnership with the College of Business Administration. Descriptions of these programs are in the Interdepartmental and Intercampus Programs section of this catalog.
