As a leader in research and education, the college has established clusters of research excellence, including additive manufacturing, cybersecurity, and bioengineering. The college also works with the government on various state and national initiatives, including research in national defense, response analysis and nuclear waste storage. Our partnership with the Air Force and Army Research Labs alone is backed by a $5 million annual research grant.

We have over 4,000 students at UNT Engineering, with about 250 enrolled in our doctoral programs. In total, the College of Engineering offers 4 doctoral, 10 master's, and 11 bachelor's degree programs in biomedical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, information technology, electrical engineering, materials science and engineering, mechanical and energy engineering, construction engineering technology and mechanical engineering technology, which prepare our students to compete in today's global market. Additionally, the college has established multiple 3+2 education programs with universities in India and China.

As a partner with the local community, the college collaborates with more than 20 companies in the Dallas Metroplex through research and senior design capstone projects. Additionally, our UNT STEM@thePark initiative brings K-12 students from all over DFW together with UNT Engineering students and faculty to learn more about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  

UNT College of Engineering works to make a positive impact in the lives of our students as well as within the Dallas Metroplex, the State of Texas, the U.S., and globally. I invite you to join us in our journey of making positive impacts.
