At the inaugural State of the University, President Smatresk gave a frank assessment of UNT and unveiled the top priorities UNT will tackle this year. He also outlined how UNT will evolve its focus throughout the next three years to ensure continued progress.
The College of Engineering is part of the Cold-Formed Steel Research Consortium, a group of leading researchers that provide comprehensive research on cold-formed steel structures. Associate professor Cheng Yu, construction engineering technology program coordinator and NSF Faculty Early Career Development Award winner, leads UNT’s role in this elite partnership.
UNT's College of Engineering leads the way in innovative programs and research in surface engineering and green technologies. It now offers a Ph.D. in mechanical and energy engineering, the first degree of its kind in Texas and one of the only doctoral programs in the U.S. specializing in energy applications in mechanical engineering. The first students will begin in spring 2015.
