For a truly immersive experience, run the YouTube app on your smartphone, find a spinning chair, cue the video and see for yourself!
We call ourselves University of Advancing Technology and we’re quite serious about that — especially the Advancing part — even when it comes to virtual tours. With a drone as your tour guide, go airborne to experience a day in the life of UAT students learning, experiencing and innovating. The sky’s the limit.
The Research and Creation Center (RCC) is a flexible production space. The newly redesigned space has high ceilings that can be purposed for anything from an indoor drone lab to motion capture to autonomous robot testing. This is a "do it" space for all research and creation projects.
UAT is an ideal environment for technology students who value uniqueness and the power of advancing technology as well as the rigors of a traditional education. This fusion of the traditional academy with the technology-focused curricula creates a distinct, non-exclusionary university in which students learn to value their own uniqueness and the power of technology in education.
At the heart of UAT's curricula is our technology-infused campus in Tempe, Arizona. Our urban campus is a technology nexus; a collection of technophiles, geeks and mavens of the digital world that evolve into top technology executives, master programmers, cyber warriors, forensic sleuths, robotic engineers, interactive filmmakers and game innovators.
Founder’s Hall is just two minutes across the quad from your classes and is the perfect complement to the UAT classroom experience. Founder’s has full wireless coverage and basic cable in every room. The high-definition Movie Room is equipped with a 120-inch, 1080p projection screen and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound. The residence hall’s Think Tanks are unique, soundproof rooms equipped with whiteboards, monitors and workspace to help you and your friends plan out the next big innovation. Second floor community space includes three lounges to play foosball, ping pong, cards or challenge your peers to epic video game competitions in our newly designed Video Game Lounge. Even the laundry facility is connected to the Internet so you can check to see if the machines are open or in use! And the Fitness Center has all the equipment you need to stay in top shape including a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, bench and free weights.
UAT’s New Technologies (NT) Lab provides an innovation sandbox where, together under one roof, a variety of leading-edge, prototype technologies converge for students to explore and shape new ideas, collaborate in a shared learning environment, and innovate tomorrow’s next great thing. What’s even more exciting is that the lab is a living, breathing space that will change as technology evolves. The New Technologies Lab includes work stations for Apple Development, Mobile Development, Game Development, Virtual Reality, Mind Control and Motion Control. All students can gain access to the space and its technology by checking out a key from the Bindery.
UAT Makers Fab Lab is equipped with the latest 3D printers, maker bots, CNC cutters and the software and knowledge guidance that students need to bring innovative ideas to life. The Digital Maker Fab Lab is designed to foster creativity and challenge student innovators with a 24/7 environment for those who seek to lead the new industrial revolution driven by the convergence of advancing technologies.
The studio includes a green screen and compositing features that provide technology degree students the opportunity to capture photo, film and digital media into other works, predominately animation, games and digital video. The studio’s other main feature is the state-of-the-art motion capture equipment. At this advanced technology University, students can experience tracking and capturing live human motion and applying those motions to digitally created characters and/or models.
This lab is a uniquely designed space where students have hands-on opportunities to build utilizing current technology and supplies. The University provides a wide range of tools and basic raw materials for woodworking, plastic working, light metalworking, and electronics construction and debugging. The lab is open for any student to use 24/7, although you’ll frequently find Robotics and Embedded systems students there because it’s the home of UAT’s robots, particularly Murphy, our 3 1/2 foot tall robot that our Artificial Life Programming and Robotics and Embedded Systems students use to learn autonomous robot programming.
UAT’s central Commons is outfitted with an abundance of computer workstations and an extensive technology infrastructure. Student and faculty learning and resource areas are designed to foster working in collegial groups, providing flexibility and much needed access to technology. Food services, library and student social areas are adjacent to enhance student life and collaborative learning.
