A team of researchers from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering is collaborating to make 4-D print nickel-titanium memory alloys. When the structures are exposed to temperature change or magnetic fields, they change their physical shape or properties, and could have applications for anything from satellites to medical implants.


Epigenetic changes in DNA underlie diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s and developmental disorders. Collaborating teams at the Texas A&M Institute of Biosciences and Technology have developed a system that combats these changes with a tool that deciphers codes of the human genome.


Our newly established Gas and Fuels Research Center is a multidisciplinary experiment station entirely dedicated to advancing gas and fuels exploration, production, treatment and processing research activities.


Modern vehicles are becoming increasingly more autonomous, making them not only vulnerable to crashes, but also to cyberattacks. Our researchers have developed an intelligent transportation system prototype designed to avoid collisions and prevent hacking.

A team of researchers led by our chemists and science engineers have found a way to achieve an atom-by-atom transformation, creating a material that supports the faster, more powerful computer chips for our ever-changing technological world.


We’ve overcome one of the paper and pulp industry’s most challenging issues: making quality carbon fiber material from waste. Thanks to a team of researchers through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, paper waste material will now be made into everything from tennis rackets to automobiles.


The future of “smart” agriculture is here. We’re overseeing a major research project that will use drones as a tool to boost agricultural development and advance crop production.
