Dr. Manfred Huber

Dr. Manfred Huber

UT Arlington computer scientist’s research would make robots more observant

The use of household robots for health care or service needs could help thousands of people, but most of those people do not have the skills to program those robots.

Manfred Huber, associate professor of computer science and engineering, is seeking ways to program robots by having them observe a human performing a particular task, then imitate it to complete the same objective.

Dr. Huber was awarded a highly competitive $139,968 Early-concept Grant for Exploratory Research, or EAGER, award from the National Science Foundation to advance his work.

Undergraduate Business, Engineering programs move up on U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges lists

The University saw two of its premier colleges advance in stature and placement on the annual U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges lists released last week.

The College of Engineering moved to No. 98 on the 2016 list of 165 ranked undergraduate engineering programs at colleges offering doctoral degrees, up from 100 on the 2015 list. The College of Business ranked 131st among 472 undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, up from 133rd the previous year.

The rankings are based on recommendations of deans and senior faculty members nationwide. “The continued steady climb of both the College of Business and the College of Engineering are testament to the high caliber of our outstanding faculty and students, innovative curricula and focus on excellence,” UTA President Vistasp M. Karbhari says. “We continue to meet the increasing workforce needs of the Metroplex and Texas while simultaneously enhancing the level of scholarship and research, all of which result in our accelerated rise to higher levels of national and international excellence.”

masonry school

Building a future: William Kaufman, a student in the Division of Enterprise Development's masonry school, is learning how to be a mason.

Enterprise Development joins industry, Texas Masonry Council to start two masonry schools

The UTA Division of Enterprise Development has partnered with more than 20 companies and an industry council to create two masonry schools that will address a shortage of masons.

Acme Brick has donated $50,000 to start the schools. Contractors and manufacturers from across the state, along with the Waco-based Texas Masonry Council, have donated money and in-kind contributions that total more than $225,000 to kick-start the schools.

UT Arlington has leased space and is operating in Grand Prairie’s Great Southwest Industrial District and the northern area of Houston. Students graduating from the eight-week program will have a great understanding of brick and concrete masonry unit construction, earn a 10-hour OSHA certification card, and have the potential to earn a substantial starting salary.

UTA FabLab gives new option to children in need of prosthetic hands

The UTA FabLab, operated by UT Arlington Libraries, offers new hope to families in need of low-cost artificial hands for children by joining Enabling the Future (e-NABLE), a network of providers offering access to 3-D print technology. The move will allow visitors to customize and fabricate prosthetic hands for children in a matter of hours, and for $50 or less, a fraction of the cost of a medical prosthesis.

“We chose to focus on children with e-NABLE because it’s difficult for them to get properly sized prostheses,” says Fraser Jones, UTA FabLab technician. “The costs of medical prostheses can present a daunting financial challenge to caregivers because as children grow, their prosthesis must grow with them.”

Many families find the investment impractical and do without. The benefit of e-NABLE is that people can produce a low-cost prosthesis. This is particularly important for a child whose family is unable to spend thousands of dollars every six months to a year to accommodate growth.
