The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) was founded in 1883 and is located near the state capitol of Texas in Austin. The Cockrell School of Engineering, College of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy, Jackson School of Geosciences and College of Natural Sciences receive high marks from university rating providers. UT Austin does not have a medical teaching hospital, but it offers medical sciences courses. Nearly 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students attend UT Austin.
Researchers design first battery-powered invisibility cloak
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have proposed the first design of a cloaking device that uses an external source of energy to significantly broaden its bandwidth of operation.
Evolving plumbing system beneath Greenland slows ice sheet as summer progresses
A team led by scientists at the University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics has for the first time directly observed multiple parts of Greenland's subglacial plumbing system and how that system evolves each summer ...
Revision to rules for color in dinosaurs suggests connection between color and physiology
New research that revises the rules allowing scientists to decipher color in dinosaurs may also provide a tool for understanding the evolutionary emergence of flight and changes in dinosaur physiology prior to its origin.
Walking on all fours is not backward evolution, study shows
Contradicting earlier claims, "The Family That Walks on All Fours," a group of quadrupedal humans made famous by a 2006 BBC documentary, have simply adapted to their inability to walk upright and do not represent an example ...
Team grows large graphene crystals that have exceptional electrical properties
When it comes to the growth of graphene—an ultrathin, ultrastrong, all-carbon material—it is survival of the fittest, according to researchers at The University of Texas at Austin.
Engineers convert yeast cells into 'sweet crude' biofuel
(Phys.org) —Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin's Cockrell School of Engineering have developed a new source of renewable energy, a biofuel, from genetically engineered yeast cells and ordinary table sugar. ...
Synthetic molecule makes cancer self-destruct
Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin and five other institutions have created a molecule that can cause cancer cells to self-destruct by ferrying sodium and chloride ions into the cancer cells.
Supercomputing beyond genealogy reveals surprising European ancestors
What if you researched your family's genealogy, and a mysterious stranger turned out to be an ancestor?
Researchers invent 'meta mirror' to help advance nonlinear optical systems
Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have created a new nonlinear metasurface, or meta mirror, that could one day enable the miniaturization of laser systems.
