UTA recently reached Tier One statues as a research university and with the implementation of the new Allan Saxe Research Fellowship, those research opportunities continue to increase. The Allan Saxe Research Fellowship is a new program to the department of political science that is offering undergraduate students a new avenue for understanding and conducting political science research. Broken down into two part, students are able to not only receive a classroom education but real world application of the skills they obtain. The fellowship launches its pilot year in the Spring of 2017.

The University of Texas at Arlington has seven buildings dedicated to the engineering department and more than 7,000 students registered as engineering students. There has to be a reason as to why the engineering department is full of success on campus. I go out and venture around the engineering side of campus and find students to tell me why they chose the engineering department and as to why they are sticking with that degree.
