Frisco MBA

University to launch Frisco-based MBA for working professionals

UT Arlington is recruiting students for a two-year, fully accredited Master of Business Administration degree program that will be offered in Frisco beginning in fall 2011.

All classes will be held at the North Texas Enterprise Center for Technology near the North Dallas Tollway and Eldorado Parkway. Information sessions about the new MBA program are scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursdays, Feb. 17, and 24, and Monday, Feb. 28, at the NTEC building. Classes begin Aug. 25.

“People who live and work here tend to be highly educated, but they face a marketplace that is more competitive than ever," says Dan Himarios, dean of the College of Business. "The MBA Professional Cohort at Frisco can provide the means to an important competitive edge for future business leaders in the area."

The program will cover all key elements of the traditional MBA but with a focus on business development and entrepreneurship. Additional courses focusing on global business, leadership and management, and the implementation of new technologies will prepare graduates for successful careers across the full spectrum of the marketplace.

For more information about the program or to RSVP for an informational session, visit uta.edu/frisco or contact the College of Business at 817-272-2881.

Video game system development could aid cerebral palsy assessments

A College of Engineering team has received two National Science Foundation grants worth a combined $802,000 to develop an adaptive, game-driven system to improve physical and mental assessments of children with cerebral palsy.

The disorder affects movement, muscle tone or posture and is caused by injury or abnormal development in the immature brain, most often before birth, according to the National Institutes of Health. Some 800,000 children and adults in the United States live with cerebral palsy, and about 10,000 babies born each year in the U.S. develop the disease.

Fillia Makedon, chair of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, is principal investigator for the project, which will focus on children ages 5 to 8.

Research brings prosthetic closer to the real limb

Mario Romero-Ortega, an associate professor of bioengineering, and his research team have obtained a $2.2 million grant from DARPA, the research and development office for the U.S. Department of Defense, to further the development of technology that will allow amputees to naturally control and feel bionic limbs.

Dr. Romero-Ortega has built a neural interface that he thinks will lead to a better prosthetic arm that will allow more movement—and eventually sensation—for military veterans who desperately need them.

“What makes our research different is that we’re putting the neural interface in the limb itself,” says Romero-Ortega, speaking of the tiny interfaces that allow the arm to interpret what the brain is telling it to do, and for the brain to interpret what the arm is doing.

Water flea DNA boosts understanding of genes, environment

A UT Arlington biologist and her team have helped precisely map the DNA code of the water flea, Daphnia pulex, the first crustacean genome to be sequenced.

Daphnia is a model organism for the new field of environmental genomics where researchers aim to better understand how genes and the environment interact.

Ellen Pritham, assistant professor of biology, says more genes were found in the Daphnia pulex genome than any other animal ever sequenced. The Daphnia genome has about 31,000 genes compared to about 20,000 in humans.

Dr. Pritham’s work with an international team is reported this month’s edition of Science magazine and has been featured in Nature magazine.

Arlington book

Librarians author new book on Arlington's colorful past

Imagine a bustling downtown complete with a blacksmith and general store, a speakeasy with a brothel and plentiful gambling, and a horse racetrack with world-famous personalities dotting the crowd. Arlington had all of these things and more in the North Texas town's journey to become a premier tourist destination.

The historical image is now the focus of Arlington, a book co-authored by Evelyn Barker, information literacy librarian, and Lea Worcester, the Special Collections public services librarian. Their book includes more than 200 images ranging from 1870 to current day.

“The book starts with the first three businesses in Arlington and brings us forward to Cowboys Stadium,” Worcester says.

The book also shows Arlington within the context of national history, the Great Depression, and the development of the highway system.

Arlington will be available in late March at local booksellers and through Arcadia Publishing.
