More than 4,000 College of Engineering alumni are in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The college also has successful alumni in Atlanta, Denver, the greater Los Angeles area, the San Francisco Bay area and Seattle. A growing number of graduates are in the Austin, Houston and San Antonio areas.
The College of Engineering has grown by almost 50 percent since the college was established in 2004. Many of the students are from the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The college is growing in its ability to recruit students from outside the state and the nation.
Scholarships help the college attract the best students. Blackberry, Siemens, PepsiCo and Zodiac Aerospace have made commitments to scholarship funding. In the past three years, the college has grown from very few donors to more than 80. These efforts help science and engineering at UNT, which help add value to alumni's diplomas.
UNT is becoming just as well known for science and engineering as it is for music and arts. Support and pride from alumni is needed to make sure this continues.
