Innovation and Discovery
Take on our mission to build a better Texas that is eager to compete in an interconnected world with creativity, ethical leadership and imagination. We don’t just discover the future, we make it.
The College of Science and Engineering is a gateway to in-demand STEM careers projected to make up a significant portion of the U.S. and global economy.
Shape an innovative framework with our award-winning faculty, including four Regents Professors who have made exemplary contributions to our university, community and the state of Texas.
Our faculty will help you tackle complex challenges and discover solutions with hands-on research in various fields.
Our current research includes:
The use of recycled coarse aggregate (RCA) has a high potential to significantly reduce the environmental impact of construction projects as well as the cost of construction materials. Reusing RCA in concrete mixes as a partial or full replacement of fine or coarse aggregate would be a more effective action in supporting and protecting the environment and reducing construction and demolition waste. This research reports the evaluation of medium-quality concrete properties incorporating RCA. Learn more.
