Hanchen HuangHanchen Huang, new dean of UNT's College of Engineering, recently was elected Fellow of the ASM International for his distinguished contributions to the fields of materials science and engineering.

Elected by his peers, Huang received the ASM International Fellow for his scientific contributions in developing a theoretical framework of nanorod growth, technological contributions in inventing metallic glue and entrepreneurship in commercializing the metallic glue. The research led to a new way of sticking items together, such as a computer’s central processing unit to a printed circuit board, without soldering or heat.

“As a top tier research university, UNT is delighted to have recruited a recognized scholar in mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, engineering science, and science and policy to lead the vibrant College of Engineering,” said UNT Provost Jennifer Cowley. “We’re excited to see what comes next for the college under Dr. Huang’s leadership.”

Huang, who is also an elected Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Society of Engineering Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, will be honored by ASM International at the Materials Science and Technology 2019 awards dinner this fall in Portland, Oregon.
