Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory (NSERL)

The Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory (NSERL) stands without peer on the UT Dallas campus. The four-story, 192,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility cost $85 million to build and will be used, in part, to help draw scientists from across the world and from all disciplines to the labs. About one-third of the research laboratory's space is being reserved for that purpose.


Dr. Bruce Gnade, vice president for research at UT Dallas, served as faculty liaison to the laboratory project. Dr. Robert Wallace, a professor with joint appointment in the departments of electrical engineering and physics, works on materials for integrated circuits that can be used in computers, cell phones and other technologies.
