Students working on semiconductor circuitry

Have you ever thought about who created fuel-efficient hybrid cars, developed instant messaging and computer games, or designed durable lightweight materials? Engineers are responsible for almost all of today’s technologies, from cell phones, digital cameras and DVDs to facial-recognition equipment, tiny in-body drug dispensing devices and spine-tingling amusement park rides.

Engineers are well-paid professionals, on par with business managers and lawyers. Engineering graduates with bachelor’s degrees have average starting salaries ranging from $55,000 to $60,000, depending on their disciplines. Master’s and doctoral graduates’ salaries are even higher.

The analytical skills learned in engineering can prepare you for numerous professions. Some engineers become top managers, government officials, business owners, journalists, teachers, health professionals or lawyers.

Project-oriented Study

Student working on research project

The College of Engineering offers many ways for you to learn about your discipline and evaluate real-world solutions. In your classes, you will work with students in small groups on projects, presentations and problems. You may also complete projects in the college’s many labs such as the electronics, manufacturing, wind tunnel and nanotechnology labs.

Nanoscience and Technology Research Facility

UNT’s College of Engineering owns a focused ion beam microscope, a transmission electron microscope and a local electrode atom probe. This equipment provides capabilities to researchers that are unique among public universities in the nation. Having access to these cutting edge tools gives our students and faculty members a rare advantage.

Students at Discovery Park


College of Engineering classes are held in the spacious Discovery Park, UNT’s nearly 290-acre research park in north Denton.
