With its main campus in Richardson, the University of Texas at Dallas or UT Dallas stands as a public research university. In less than 47 years, the university has been associated with four Nobel Prizes and has faculty that are members of the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Science.
During its establishment in 1961, it was a private research arm of Texas Instruments called the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest and later renamed as the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies. It was established by Erik Jonsson, Eugene McDermott, and Cecil Green, founders of Texas Instruments.
In 1969, the Center was passed to the state and was assimilated in the public University of Texas System among other higher educational institutions. This officially created the University of Texas at Dallas.
Being younger than other universities, the University of Texas at Dallas was classified in 2015 by the Carnegie Foundation as a “Doctoral University - Highest Research Activity.” It has a lively research culture with projects in the areas of nanotechnology, space science, behavioral and brain science, bioengineering, and cybersecurity.
