As a rising research powerhouse, The University of Texas at Arlington advances the economy by fostering discovery and cultivating entrepreneurship. Our researchers relentlessly pursue answers to seemingly impossible-to-solve problems, creating knowledge that evolves into the next generation of inventions.

These cutting-edge explorations helped UT Arlington’s research expenditures more than triple in 10 years to a record $66 million in 2010-11. Our faculty members received 14 patents last year, and an additional 52 are up for consideration.
