The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) is a tier-one research institution that fosters the advancement of cutting-edge research discoveries and technology. UT Dallas receives funding from various federal agencies, state agencies, industry, and foundations. These funds are generally awarded in multi-year contract or grants, therefore the amount recorded as received each year may not reflect the research being done in that year.

The Office of Research and Innovation oversees research metrics for the institution, including proposals and total research dollars awarded, research expenditures, and licensing revenue.
