Join top scientists from UT Austin and other energy experts in academia, industry, government and non-profit world for a reality check on some of the most vital energy issues facing society in this unique, week-long critical examination of the latest research findings, emerging trends and new technologies.
For the Cockrell School, 2014 was a year of significant milestones and momentum, marking the beginning of a new era in engineering education at UT Austin. Follow a timeline for a sampling of the extraordinary achievements, exciting news and world-changing research discoveries from Texas Engineering over the past year.
The Cockrell School of Engineering has launched a newly renovated space where students will take their ideas from invention to reality. In its first few weeks, the Longhorn Maker Studio has become a magnet for engineering students interested in making everything from drones and robots to 3-D printed objects and electronic sensors.
Located on the ground level of the Engineering Teaching Center, the Longhorn Maker Studio is outfitted with 3-D printers and scanners, laser cutters, sewing machines, machines for fabricating electronic circuit boards and many other tools. The 1,700-square-foot studio is the latest effort by the Cockrell School and Dean Sharon L. Wood to provide more opportunities for hands-on learning and student projects.
