University of Advancing Technology
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) is a unique, technology-infused private college that was founded by a techno-geek for techno-geeks. Our Mission is to educate students in the fields of advancing technology to become innovators of the future. UAT's campus culture is devoted to continually nurturing a thriving geek community where everyone's personal lives and professional aspirations revolve around technology.
UAT offers students a well-rounded education in a non-traditional setting. Students who are seeking a strictly career-oriented, technical college experience will not find it here. Because of UAT's dedication to both scholastic excellence and technological innovation, it stands apart in academia as an ideal destination for the geeks of the world who feel disenfranchised by conventional institutions of higher learning. For the student who is looking at the future of technology and wishes to become a vital part of it, UAT beckons.
The beginning of the 21st century is an exciting time to be in the technology community. Current subjects of ongoing research and scholarship at UAT include robotics and embedded systems, artificial life programming, information and network security, game development, and other areas of advanced technology.
Since the college launched operations at its campus in Tempe, Arizona-a community at the heart of the Phoenix metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun-we've devoted all of our resources to creating a vital academic environment where students are challenged to achieve, explore new and traditional concepts, and practice what they learn in real-world situations. This combination of research, scholarship and application creates technically adept graduates who are equally at home in academia and the working world, and valued by both.
UAT graduates will thrive in the digital age. Our students benefit from their fundamental understanding of both theoretical and applied aspects of technology. We believe to a certainty that UAT graduates will meet and surpass every expectation of their high-technology employers and peers. Our graduates enter the professional world with accredited associate's and bachelor's degrees, and many return to pursue a master's degree at our Graduate Studies.
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) will award Thinking Scholarships to students who meet the scholarship criteria after successfully completing the application. The Thinking Scholarship program is created to acknowledge and reward those students that have gone above and beyond in their time prior to attending UAT. Scholarship awardees must also demonstrate the mission, vision and values of the University. The awards are named in honor of prominent thinkers in our community: Dr. Edward de Bono, Dr. Fritjof Capra, Dr. Margaret Wheatley, Dr. Michio Kaku, Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Lynn Margulis. Thinking Scholarships will be awarded based on an application that includes an essay, resume and completed works, and a demonstration of financial need. The scholarships will be broken into two different groups: The Dr. Edward de Bono Scholarship - an award of $2,500 per semester for up to eight (8) semesters; The Thinking Scholar (Dr. Fritjof Capra, Dr. Margaret Wheatley, Dr. Michio Kaku, Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Lynn Margulis) - an award of $1,000 per semester for up to eight (8) semesters. Eligibility: You are a first-time UAT student starting in the Fall 2011 or beyond. You are an on-campus, undergraduate student. You demonstrate financial need based on the FAFSA application (students can also submit a completed optional essay in addition to the FAFSA application).
