A new UTA study shows that adult learners, aged 25 and older, are motivated to transfer from a community college because of the perceived prestige that is associated with becoming an engineer.
Ankur Jain (MAE) is co-leading a team that is seeking ways to harness heat energy lost from automobiles, buildings and other devices, using an NSF EAGER grant.
The accolades continue to roll in for the Formula SAE program, which was recently mentioned in a post about UTA in “10 Colleges Not to Miss” on BestRide.com.
A new course, introduced in fall 2015, is designed to help make math more accessible for engineering students.
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.
