As a premier, research-extensive institution, our students—undergraduate and graduate—delve further into subjects they may have only dreamed about.
Recent examples include zero-energy housing, using supercomputers for medical breakthroughs, and studying diseases in species around the world.
From improving mental health and education to economics and taxation efficiencies, our work impacts people, places, and industries throughout the world.
One of humankind's biggest technological steps was the ability to print words on paper. Now, thanks to UT College of Engineering assistant professor Anming Hu, it's technology itself that is being printed. Hu, of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, has researched a way to print circuits on paper, the main impact of which could be a decrease in cost and an increase in portability for any number of devices.
Warfare not only hastened human technological progress and vast social and political changes, but may have greatly contributed to the evolutionary emergence of humans' high intelligence and ability to work together toward common goals, according to a new study from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis.
The phrase "cloaked in secrecy" can often be used to describe research projects, but thanks to breakthroughs in the College of Engineering, optical cloaking is no longer just the domain of science fiction.
Five UT professors have been named by the American Association for the Advancement of Science to its 2014 class of fellows for their teaching and research.
Zebrafish, commonly found at pet stores, share 12,800 genes in common with humans. That link is helping researchers at UT with research that could make medicine more affordable.
The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, recently published an interdisciplinary study led by associate professor Gong Gu.
The Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education brings together extensive and complementary resources at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory to increase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics research of national significance.
