Facilities

UTARI is located in a multimillion dollar, 48,000-square-foot facility on the University’s scenic Riverbend Campus in Fort Worth.

Research Laboratories

Inside the UT Arlington Research Institute, you’ll find research laboratories previously unavailable to corporate America, including a 1,650-square-foot pilot production facility dedicated to the custom development of scalable processes for automated micromanufacturing.

UTARI’s research area also features three product engineering laboratories, one prototyping laboratory, two robotics laboratories (including a dedicated assistive robotics laboratory), and two biomedical laboratories. There are also two Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS) cleanrooms, controls labs, and separate labs for advanced controls, advanced packaging, medical microdevices, piezoelectrics, and more.
