Arts and Technology Impact on DFW

November 27, 2012

The opening of the new Arts and Technology (ATEC) Building at UT Dallas in 2013 will bring global attention to North Texas as a hub of research and innovation in this emerging field. This $60 million, 155,000-square-foot facility will provide an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment for students, scholars and industry. Here they will apply the principles of visual arts, computer science and engineering to solutions impacting fields as diverse as medicine, education, journalism, social media and more.
