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?
