Research at UT Arlington
We seek out the untested boundaries of knowledge with research centers in every discipline. 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 Research University/High Research Activity, according to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. 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.
