About Us


To promote the interchange of ideas, especially in the field of social, civic and professional advancement of the technical professions, to broaden the acquaintance of members of the profession, and to make the technical knowledge of the members available to the public in whatever manner may be advisable.

What is it ?

The Arlington Technology Association was formerly the Mid-Cities Technical Club, which was founded in November of 1999 to "Promote the interchange of ideas... and to broaden the acquaintance of members of the technical community." The Mid-Cities Technical Club was a branch of the Technical Club of Dallas, which was founded in 1919. The Technical Club of Dallas played a major role in the establishment of Southern Methodist University School of Engineering and Applied Science, the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Texas at Arlington.

Our Role

We bring together individuals at universities, institutions, industry, government bodies, and the general public to meet and discuss issues of interest to the technical community. The Arlington Technology Association is a social club, offering at its meetings a wide range of discussions. Each meeting presents a speaker on a topic of interest to a wide cross-section of engineering and applied science.

Who Belongs?

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in technical discoveries and applications. Members include professors, engineers, doctors and retired professionals and scientists as well as the general public.
