With an enrollment of 38,000 on-campus students and an additional 15,000 online degree-seeking students, UTA is the second-largest institution in The University of Texas System. The University offers more than 180 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees through 10 colleges and schools and is rising in stature through its commitment to transforming the lives of students, pushing the boundaries of knowledge, and serving a growing and diverse community. UTA has developed a strategic plan, “Bold Solutions, Global Impact” (http://www.uta.edu/strategicplan). Taking advantage of our unique location at the center of the fastest growing urban region in the U.S. and adjacency to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, our vision is to be ‘The Model 21st Century Urban Research University’. To support this vision, our strategic plan focuses on four over-arching themes across the University: Health and the Human Condition, Sustainable Urban Communities, Global Environmental Impact, ...Data Driven Discovery and Knowledge Management. The College of Engineering is playing a critical role in the advancement of each of these themes. Our highly ranked academic programs attract the best and brightest scholars from around the world, and our faculty and students consistently receive national and international recognition for their accomplishments. U.S. News & World Report ranks UT Arlington fifth among national universities for undergraduate diversity, we are a designated Hispanic Serving Institution, and the Military Times recently named UTA as the best 4-year College for veterans in the state of Texas. The Chronicle of Higher Education ranks UT Arlington among the 20 fastest-growing public research universities in the United States over the last 10 years.

It covers an area larger than the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. The Metroplex is the economic and cultural hub of North Texas and has the 10th-largest gross metropolitan product in the world. Not only is it an exciting place to live and work, the Metroplex offers UT Arlington a host of unparalleled scholarly, research, and economic activity. UTA has been a catalyst for redevelopment and revitalization in the central business district of Arlington, establishing a true college town environment in downtown Arlington. UTA’s 20-acre, mixed-use College Park District provides new special events and student living space, restaurants, and parking as part of its broad-based initiative to generate and support economic activity at the city’s urban center.
