UT Arlington Colleges of Engineering and Science to Host Research Day

October 3, 2006

The Colleges of Engineering and Science at The University of Texas at Arlington are conducting Research Day ’06 in a joint effort to promote awareness of research activities currently in progress at UT Arlington. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24 in the University Center and Nedderman Hall.

Research Day provides a venue for faculty, students and industry researchers to explore the exciting world of research activities and to share their discoveries with other researchers and possibly develop cooperative projects. UT Arlington researchers will present concise, five-minute project overviews of their project, followed by a question and answer period. The presentations will be separated into eight research areas: biotechnology, disaster mitigation, energy, environment, microelectronics, materials/mechanics, nanotechnology and software/wireless communications.

Posters describing research activities in these areas will also be display in the Rio Grande room of the University Center from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Participants in different fields may view examples of active research projects and meet with individuals involved in the projects.

The day’s activities will be highlighted with a presentation by Lawrence L. Kazmerski, director of the National Center for Photovoltaics in the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. His 10:00am presentation in Room 100 of Nedderman Hall is titled “Solar Photovoltaics: Evolutionary, Disruptive and Revolutionary Technologies.”

All presentations are free and open to the public. The University Center is located at 300 W. First Street, Nedderman Hall at 416 Yates Street. More information is available on the Research Day web site:
