MEE Faculty Position

The University of North Texas (UNT) invites applications for a tenure track or tenured faculty position at the assistant professor or at the associate professor level in the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering (MEE).

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Jaehyung Ju

In the mechanical and energy engineering department, tires are getting an overhaul. Ju, an assistant professor and researcher in UNT's PACCAR Technology Institute, contributed to the development of the airless or non-pneumatic tire. On the market within perhaps a decade, the tires are made of polyurethane and rely on a structure of flexible spokes for stiffness instead of air.

Spotlight on Research

In the past nearly one decade, Dr. Xu Nie’s main research focus has been dedicated to study the dynamic behavior and failure of advanced engineering and protective materials, and the development of Kolsky bar-based novel experimental techniques for various high-rate

Why Study Mechanical and Energy Engineering?

As it has evolved, mechanical engineering has come to include emerging energy solutions, which are integral to everything from the betterment of daily life to national security interests and global prosperity. Engineers are in high demand in academia and the workplace to solve major challenges in sustainable energy provision, the development of innovative medical devices and the mechanics of new materials for the next generation of vehicles.
