UTA to Break Ground This Fall on $125 Million Research and Teaching Facility

The University of Texas at Arlington will break ground this fall on a $125 million state-of-the-art research and teaching facility.

The 220,000 square foot Science and Engineering Innovation and Research (SEIR) Building will house interdisciplinary research neighborhoods that will enhance collaboration among UTA’s nationally ranked College of Engineering, College of Nursing and Health Innovation, and College of Science.

In May, the University of Texas System Board of Regents approved the design for a new SEIR building, which aims to support the significant growth of students in areas of workforce need and provide the basis for enhancement in research activity.

The modern glass and steel building will provide a new, iconic southern entry to the UTA campus, south of the existing Life Science building. The project will add 900 teaching seats in lecture halls and classrooms, which will support enrollment growth across campus, especially the planned growth in the College of Engineering, the College of Nursing and Health Innovation and the College of Science.
