For more than 50 years, the College of Engineering at UT Arlington has helped set the standard for educational excellence. With 7 departments, 10 bachelor's, 14 master's and 9 doctoral degrees, more than 6,000 students and 24,000 alumni, it is the fourth-largest college of engineering in the state, providing the local, regional, and national workforce with motivated and highly skilled graduates. UT Arlington is classified as a Research University / High Activity by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Faculty research expenditures are more than $37 million per year. The College has active research grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Departments of Defense and Energy, NASA, DARPA, and the American Heart Association, among others, in key areas such as healthcare, security, energy, and environment. The University recently invested $160 million to construct an additional 295,000 square feet of engineering facilities. This brings the college’s total footprint to 417,359 square feet in seven buildings, including the new 234,000-square-foot Engineering Research Building.
The College of Engineering provides the opportunity for study in a wide variety of engineering disciplines under the guidance of an excellent faculty. Baccalaureate degree programs are offered in aerospace engineering, architectural engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering. The programs in aerospace engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
The program in computer science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET. Graduate degrees are offered in each of these disciplines and in another area of specialization: materials science and engineering. (All of these graduate programs offer both master's and doctoral degrees except software engineering, engineering management, logistics, and systems engineering, which offer a master's degree only.) A combined BS (Biology)/MS (Biomedical Engineering) degree is available for students interested in tissue engineering and biotechnology; see the Other Engineering Subject Areas section and the Biology section of the Undergraduate Catalog and the Biomedical Engineering section of the UT Arlington Graduate Catalog for details.
There are several Fast Track Programs in the college of engineering where seniors with outstanding academic background may begin taking graduate classes for dual credit while still being undergraduates. More details on the Fast Track Programs are provided in a later section.
