A UTA aerospace engineering team will build the country’s only university-based, arc-heated, hypersonic-testing facility for thermal protection systems through a new $1.01 million Defense University Research Instrumentation Program grant.
UTA is advancing plans for a new six-story Science, Engineering Innovation and Research building to help meet increasing student demand and to further the University’s emerging concentration in health science initiatives.
Researchers Robert Taylor and Ashfaq Adnan will receive funding as part of a group that is one of nine awardees from America Makes for additive manufacturing applied research and development projects.
MAE assistant professor Ashfaq Adnan is modifying molecular structures and blending ceramics to create new material that would be less brittle but retain the strength of the original ceramic and could be used on spacecraft, in power plants and for other applications.
MAE professor Andrew Makeev is collaborating with Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. to design more durable materials and accelerate their implementation in composite aircraft.
UT Arlington's Formula SAE racing team will host at least a dozen teams from across North America for the 15th Annual Texas Autocross Weekend July 17-19 on the UT Arlington campus.
Yahoo! Labs delivered 480 computer servers to the UT Arlington College of Engineering to further research led by mechanical engineering professor Dereje Agonafer into more efficient systems for cooling essential network equipment.
Pranesh Aswath, associate dean for graduate studies and professor of materials science and engineering, has been named a Fellow of ASM International.
The College of Engineering recently celebrated the accomplishments of three faculty members, one staff member, and an alumnus.
UTA has a new partnership with a longtime Silicon Valley entrepreneur and alumna who will establish a strategic outpost to match technology developed within the University with investors and corporate partners.
UTA researchers have created a new power generator that can produce electricity up to 25 percent more efficiently than existing technology, reduce emissions and could alleviate power shortages in more remote areas of the globe.
NASA has selected UTA as one of four U.S. institutions to develop improved methods for oxygen recovery and reuse aboard human spacecraft.
Dereje Agonafer, a mechanical engineering professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, has won an IBM Faculty Award.
