UT Dallas is a top public university located in one of the nation’s fastest-growing metropolitan regions. Our eight schools offer more than 140 undergraduate and graduate programs, plus professional certificates and fast-track programs.
Created by bold visionaries and tech pioneers, UT Dallas has nurtured generations of innovators in its first 50 years. Our roots go back to the 1960s when the three founders of Texas Instruments — Eugene McDermott, Erik Jonsson and Cecil Green — established the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest as a source of advanced research and trained scientists to benefit the state and the nation. Our creativity and enterprising spirit has been — and will continue to be — UT Dallas’ guiding light.
Our mission statement centers on providing Texas and the nation with excellent, innovative education and research. As a dynamic, young university, our gleaming future outlined in the UTD Strategic Plan, will benefit the region, state, nation and world.
