The Department of Materials Science and Engineering here at the University of North Texas addresses the education and technological challenges of creating, applying, and characterizing new materials for
fundamental science and manufacturing new and novel products for the 21st Century. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is one of the fastest growing programs at the University of North Texas. The latest rankings in U.S. News & World Report list UNT in an expert category putting us among the top national universities that are "leading the pack" in innovative changes in academics, faculty, students, campus life, diversity and facilities. UNT is the only Texas public university to receive this recognition in the U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Colleges 2010.
Materials Science and Engineering offers career choices from all possible fields. Unfortunately the awareness of this fascinating field of engineering is limited to very few people around the world and often is completely omitted from high school curriculums. Following this fact the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at UNT established the Material Advantage Student Chapter (visit http://orgs.unt.edu/MA/) in Spring 2009. Material Advantage provides a single membership that provides access to the materials science and engineering professional's most preeminent societies including ACerS (The American Ceramic Society), AIST (Association for Iron & Steel Technology), ASM International (The Materials Information Society), and TMS (The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society).
The Material Advantage Student Chapter as a community takes it as a mission to educate and improve the awareness of this field among students and scholars. With the help of chapter participation prospective students can begin building a career foundation that enables them with long-term benefits from networking through this international society.
The 2012 North Texas Student Symposium on Materials Science & Engineering, organized by the UNT MTSE department and Materials Advantage UNT Chapter, was held at UNT on March 28, 2012. Students from UT Arlington, UT Dallas, and UNT participated in the student-only oral presentations competition. MTSE students Anchal Sondhi, Travis Hilbig, Shravana Katakam, and Mrunalkumar Chaudhari represented UNT. At the awards ceremony, Mrunalkumar Chaudhari won the second place prize and Shravana Katakam took home the fourth place prize. (Photos | Read Article)
