The department operates the Zero Energy Research Laboratory, a living and working
facility designed to test emerging, sustainable technologies and materials to achieve
a net-zero consumption of energy in buildings. It's the only facility of its kind
in the state.
The North Texas Ambient Energy Monitoring Station is the only weather station in the
nation operated by an energy engineering department. This provides you with an exclusive
opportunity to use weather data in your research.
Located five miles north of the main campus and serviced by a free shuttle, Discovery
Park houses the College of Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
The 300-acre research facility pulls together academic laboratories, offices and classrooms
to maximize the potential for creativity, collaboration and technology innovation.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering enjoys forming partnerships with local industry
leaders and companies, who work with the department on student projects and research
initiatives. Partnerships with industry leaders allow students to apply what they
learn to solve real issues.
The Minor in Mechanical Engineering Technology with the MEFT certificate will enhance
