University of Texas at Dallas
Math, Science, & Engineering Teaching Center
The new Math, Science, and Engineering Teaching and Learning Center (MSET) at University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) serves as a comprehensive facility for providing focused, research-based, high-quality education for UTD students in their freshman and sophomore years of study. This learning center utilizes cutting edge technology to create high-tech learning environments. The facility will be equipped to serve concurrently as a major laboratory for research on effective teaching and learning techniques in these fields, both at the college level and through full range from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The facility includes lecture halls, recitation areas, instructional laboratories, offices for faculty and tutors. The instructional facilities will incorporate the full range of cutting-edge learning technologies, along with measurement apparatus to collect data for research on evidence-based enhancements in student learning. The building houses UTD’s instructional activities in freshman and sophomore mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and geosciences courses, along with offices for senior and junior instructors from these departments and faculty from UTD’s Department of Mathematics and Science Education. The instructional facilities also serve as research laboratories in which faculty in UTD’s Department of Mathematics and Science Education can develop evidence-based improvements for the learning process in mathematics and the sciences though the entire K-12 regime while simultaneously directly improving UTD instructional quality. The unique building design reinforces its STEM mission though a digital art mural based upon DNA at the formation of a new campus quadrangle.
