The University of Texas at Arlington sets the standard for educational excellence. Through life-enhancing research, innovative teaching and community service, UT Arlington Mavericks challenge convention and transform the world in which they live. In fact, UT Arlington’s research expenditures have more than doubled in the past five years. Since 2003, faculty disclosures of intellectual property have increased from 26 to 60 and patents filed from 15 to 34. This means real-world research addressing real-world needs. Some examples of this new research are:\r\n\r\nThe new Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair in Nanoelectronics is exploring commercialization of bio sensor platforms for drug discovery and medical diagnostics. \r\n\r\nUT Arlington and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce dedicated the Center for Innovation in 2009. The center focuses on increasing economic development through research. \r\n\r\nBioengineering Department faculty are conducting research in optical medical imaging that seeks improved surgical procedures for implanting deep brain stimulators to combat cancer. \r\n\r\nThe Center for Renewable Energy Science and Technology is developing low-cost biodiesel fuel processing and novel solar hydrogen generation technologies. \r\n\r\nElectrical engineering researchers are developing wireless sensors that, when implanted in the body, show promise in combating gastroesophageal reflux disease, pain and other medical conditions.\r\n\r\nEngineers and scientists in the Nanotechnology Research and Teaching Facility are manipulating individual atoms and molecules that could herald the next electronics revolution.\r\n\r\nDepartment of Kinesiology researchers are examining rehabilitation interventions to decrease the risk of falls in sighted and legally blind older adults.\r\n\r\nPsychology researchers are studying the rehabilitation of military personnel returning from Afghanistan and Iraq with musculoskeletal extremity injuries.\r\n\r\nCollaboration among nursing, biology and psychology, the new Genomics Translational Research Laboratory works to bridge the gap between discoveries in genomics and patient care.\r\n \r\nThese innovative research initiatives will be further enhanced by the 2011 completion of an engineering research complex, which will also include a component for science research. \r\n \r\nWith that being said, UT Arlington embraces an active-learning environment that places students at the center of the learning process. Many of the University’s 1,100 faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for their teaching and research expertise. The School of Architecture is tied for first in the nation for the “Most Innovative Architecture Program” award from the Design Intelligence Journal.\r\nThe College of Business has the largest executive MBA program in China.\r\n\r\n\r\n
