Research at UT Arlington

UTA is the model 21st century urban research university, with activities focused around our four key guiding themes: Health and the Human Condition; Sustainable Urban Communities; Global Environmental Impact and Data-Driven Discovery.

The Center for Renewable Energy, Science and Technology develops efficient, affordable, and eco-friendly alternative energy processes. Our Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies houses one of the nation’s most significant installments of scientific instrumentation. Our Center of Excellence in Health and Chronic Illness addresses marked changes in major health threats facing populations today. And those are just a few examples.

Our efforts have earned us the classification as a R1: Doctoral University- Highest Research Activity from the Carnegie Classification of Institutions for Higher Education. Funding for our burgeoning research enterprise continues to grow year after year.

See what research means to us. And what our research means to the world.
