  • With DOE Funding, Researchers Aim to Make Chemical Plants More Energy-Efficient

    Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering recently received $360,000 from the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability and the National Energy Technology Laboratory within the U.S. Department of Energy.

  • Cockrell School Once Again Ranked Among Best U.S. Undergraduate Engineering Programs

    Texas Engineering held its position from the previous year as the No. 11 best undergraduate engineering program in the U.S. and No. 6 among U.S. public schools, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings, released Sept. 13.

  • UT Austin and Texas A&M Partner on Solar Energy Research Center

    It does not require a force as powerful as the sun to get Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin to work together, but it certainly helps. The institutions, along with Texas A&M University-Central Texas and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, are officially collaborating on a major solar research initiative following the awarding of a new grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

  • Low-Temp Production Could Mean Cheaper, Flexible Smart Windows

    Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have invented a new flexible smart window material that, when incorporated into windows, sunroofs, or even curved glass surfaces, will have the ability to control both heat and light from the sun. Their article about the new material will be published in the September issue of Nature Materials.
