Graduates are qualified for successful careers in education, industry and research laboratories interested in speech and human-computer interactions.


iPerform Center for Assistive Technologies to Enhance Human Performance

A National Science Foundation-funded Industry-University Collaborative Research Center (NSF I/UCRC), iPerform is a research hub for technology that enhances human abilities. Professors at The University of Texas at Dallas, The University of Texas at Arlington and industry researchers involved in iPerform are currently working on computer-based tools and methods to increase, maintain or improve functional capabilities of people with disabilities and to enhance the productivity of able-bodied individuals.


Net-Centric Software and Systems Center

A National Science Foundation-funded Industry-University Collaborative Research Center (NSF I/UCRC), the Net-Centric Software and Systems Center is a collaboration among several institutions. Members conduct research, education, technology development, technology transfer and technological workforce development to enable the nation to transition into the new net-centric operations paradigm. Priorities of the center include technology incubation, technology commercialization and the invention of novel software technologies for building network-ready, interoperable and trustworthy service-oriented systems.


Silicon Wafer Engineering and Defect Science (SiWEDS) Center

SiWEDS started as a National Science Foundation-funded Industry-University Collaborative Research Center (NSF I/UCRC) but is now a freestanding center supported by multiple university and corporate members. SiWEDS addresses the scientific and technological issues the international silicon materials industry must solve in order to meet the future needs of advanced integrated circuit manufacturing.


Texas Analog Center of Excellence (TxACE)

The largest university-based analog center in the world, the center was formed by the Semiconductor Research Corporation, the state of Texas through its Texas Emerging Technology Fund, Texas Instruments, The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas. TxACE seeks to transform analog and power circuit research into a holistic process that creates revolutionary integrated circuits and systems.


Texas Biomedical Device Center (TxBDC)

The collaborative effort carried on at the Texas Biomedical Device Center (TxBDC) engages researchers from multiple disciplines working toward a common goal: creating new biomedical technology and therapies for patients who have suffered neurological injuries. A goal of TxBDC members is to make sure recent and future technological advances make it from the research laboratory into the clinic and ultimately, to patients.


Wind Energy Center

The University of Texas at Dallas’ Wind Energy Center brings together university and industry researchers to conduct basic and applied research on topics that relate to the advancement of wind turbines and the wind industry, and to train students in the advanced technologies that are important to industry members, among other things.
