The University of Texas at Tyler has created a student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Dr. Harold Doty, Soules College of Business dean, announced.

The UT Tyler IEEE Nanotechnology Student Branch Chapter is the first of its kind in Texas and only second worldwide.

“I wanted to create an interest in nanotechnology for students in the industrial technology program. The chapter is a perfect platform to get students involved,” said Dr. Dominick Fazarro, UT Tyler associate professor and chapter adviser. “Nanotechnology is considered the new industrial revolution, and students need to know the future implications and impact in society.”

Charter members, listed by hometown, are:

LINDALE – Amanda Langendorf.

TYLER – Ray Adkins, Darla Jordan Miller, Daniel Lee, Jason Thorton, Gregory Morby, Zach Zimmerman, Chacho Joy, Brian Hays, Joe McFarland, Prashanth Reddy Vdumula, Josh Duncan and Ronnie Leach.

Faculty members are Dr. Fredericka Brown, UT Tyler assistant professor of mechanical engineering; and Dr. Mark Miller, UT Tyler professor of industrial technology and industrial management.

Nanotechnology is the engineering science of creating materials at the atomic and molecular level. It has many applications in a variety of industries including medicine, energy, electronics and computers.
