THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS (UTD) is booming—in size, stature, and impact. As one of the top research universities in Texas, UTD offers some of the state’s most-lauded business, engineering, and science programs, while also providing a breadth of highly diverse educational paths across eight schools, including innovative and traditional programs in the liberal arts.

UTD’s diverse student body of approximately 29,000 benefits from academic rigor and social opportunities on a residential campus known for its striking architecture and access to all that the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex offers. The university also benefits from the support of The University of Texas System and aligns with other institutions, corporations, and nonprofits to offer students an array of learning, service, and internship opportunities.

Renowned faculty includes members of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering. Undergraduates work with distinguished researchers to seek answers to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Many academic areas also provide fast-track options that allow students to earn advanced degrees by taking graduate-level courses while earning a bachelor’s degree. High-performing students can apply to one of several programs within the Hobson Wildenthal Honors College dedicated to promoting excellence in undergraduate education.

In the past decade, UTD added some four million square feet in new or renovated space and over $1 billion in development. The newest campus structure is a 200,000-square-foot engineering and computer science building. A 186,000-square-foot science building is on track to open in fall 2020.
