After an extraordinary four years as an engineering student and member of the Texas Men’s Basketball team, Gabe Muoneke never lost sight of his dream to live and work in Nigeria, where his roots were strongest and where he felt he could make the biggest difference.
In their quest to build a better sling that doesn’t rely on trees, a group of entrepreneurial, hammock-loving Texas Engineering students ended up inventing a crowd-pleasing new product and launching a unique startup.
Like most extraordinary structures, the EERC spiral staircase needed an extraordinary investor to help make it a reality. Enter Peyton Yates, Texas Engineering alumnus and energy industry leader for over four decades, who believes that great buildings need great artwork to inspire future generations.
Texas Engineering alumni lead industries, launch companies and help develop solutions that improve lives around the world. We’re proud to share just a few of their accomplishments from the past year.
With a history that stretches back centuries, Texas and Mexico have an enduring connection. Not only do we share a 1,200-mile-long border, similar economic approaches and many cultural traditions, but we share a desire to leverage each of our strengths for a mutually beneficial return. Building upon this deep-rooted relationship, The University of Texas at Austin has made a recent push to enhance its ties with Mexico in two critical areas: research and education.
Donglei (Emma) Fan takes an active role in her daughter’s violin lessons — providing endless encouragement, listening to the pitch of each note and checking her playing postures. While other proud parents may simply see an aspiring violinist, Fan, a mechanical and materials science engineer, sees an opportunity to invent a new learning tool for the next generation.
From alumni outreach to student life programming, staff members dedicate themselves to improving and advancing the Cockrell School. Read about two of our many “unsung heroes,” and find out what inspires them to build a better Texas Engineering experience for the next generation.
We sat down with John Shebat — a mechanical engineering junior, backstroker on the Texas Men’s Swimming and Diving team and 2020 Olympic Games contender — to hear about his commitment to engineering and swimming.
From the moment you walk into the atrium of the 430,000-square-foot Engineering Education and Research Center, you can tell that Texas Engineering has entered into a new era.
How does a leading corporation ensure it has the capacity to grow and maintain its leadership position? I see the answer as a three-legged approach, where success depends on all three supports.
Inside the bright, bustling atrium of the EERC, there is one feature that stands out from the rest. It reflects a unique blend of form and purpose and serves as a functional art installation that symbolizes the building’s charisma and character.
A new, advanced, lightbased microscope invented at UT Austin offers a glimpse deep inside living cells
After one eye-opening month in college on the staff of a remote hospital in Rwanda, Reece Stevens became determined to build a new patient monitor that could be manufactured less expensively and in higher quantities.
Tom Truskett and his team believe there is a better way to bring products to market sooner, and it starts with machine learning.
Driven by both personal and professional motivation, Texas Engineers are advancing drug delivery to transform patients’ daily lives and even extend the window of treatment long enough to change a prognosis.
