UNT's Mechanical and Energy Engineering program is similar to a traditional Mechanical
Engineering curriculum, however, UNT's curriculum focuses on energy related courses
that target natural energy applications and materials.
The Grad Track option is an accelerated program for Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students, to earn their BS/Ph.D. on an accelerated time frame. The student can take a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate courses while the student is completing the BS degree. These credits will be counted towards both the BS and MS degrees.
Within their first year, students take basic fundamental courses in Math and Science. These courses will lay the foundation for the advanced level classes of the students’ choice. Students will focus on the following areas of study:
In their final year, seniors will participate in a Capstone Senior Design project that allows them to solve real-world issues, making meaningful contributions to an existing local business. The mechanical and energy engineering program also teaches students to be responsible industry leaders by giving them a global understanding of the environmental, ethical and societal impacts of the technologies they help develop.
The department's graduate programs build on the theme of Mechanical and Energy Engineering and Engineering Technology through course offerings, opportunities to engage in work experiences in faculty laboratories through directed study, theses, and dissertations.
In addition, you'll work with faculty members to develop a broad and in-depth knowledge for solving energy problems. You'll explore topics such as:
You can conduct research with faculty members in laboratories containing the most modern equipment in the nation. Among our facilities is the Zero Energy Research Laboratory where various energy technologies aimed at achieving net-zero consumption of energy are tested. The facility is the first of its kind in Texas. Other facilities include:
