The PACCAR Technology Institute (PTI) in the College of Engineering at the University of North Texas (UNT) is dedicated to research on Nanomaterials and Microsystems Technology. The initial support received from the PACCAR Foundation in 2006 has helped nucleate this Institute within the College of Engineering. With PTI Director, Prof. Anupama B. Kaul, who joined UNT in Fall 2017, the future directions of PTI will revolve around Nanomaterials and Microsystems Technology from 2018 onwards. Nanomaterials and Microsystems Technology permeate many disciplines ranging from materials science, electrical engineering, physics, biomedical engineering, chemistry and mechanical engineering. The PTI will facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations amongst faculty with core expertise in this area within the College of Engineering and the College of Science.
