Interdisciplinary Opportunities

Continuing with the established tradition of research at UT Dallas, the electrical engineering program encourages students to interact with researchers in the basic sciences and mathematics. Cross-disciplinary collaborations have been established with the chemistry, mathematics and physics programs of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and with faculty in the School of Brain and Behavioral Sciences. We’re also pursuing a growing amount of research in the biomedical applications of electrical engineering.
