 We train and educate

   Our training spans for K-12 to graduate level. The lab is actively    working to outreach and educate K-12, undergraduates and    minority students.

 
MAGIC
Manufacturing Innovation and Catalysis Center

MAGIC center is a joint center in between the University of Texas at Arlington Research Center (UTARI), Institute for Predictive Performance Methodologies (IPPM) and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at UTA. The focus of the center is integrating different scales of manufacturing to invent new methods for scalable manufacturing. We develop manufacturing techniques at nano/micro to bulk level using additive and subtractive techniques. We utilize many different engineering methods in order to evaluate these ideas from multi-physics and multi-scale computational techniques to multi-scale mechanical characterization. We also manufacture micro-nano-scale smart devices and materials using smart and functional materials.
