UT’s Role in Advanced Manufacturing Cited

As industries increasingly change over into advanced manufacturing, universities are adapting to provide graduates who can fill the new, specialized positions being created. 

UT is at the forefront of that wave, with several Governor’s Chairs across the Tickle College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Architecture and Design helping lead the charge in advanced manufacturing, materials, and techniques. 

Education Dive, a magazine devoted to looking inside higher education, has taken notice, citing UT as an example of a school that “gets” the ever-evolving manufacturing landscape and has tailored classes accordingly.
