ASM International Fellow

Hanchen Huang, dean of UNT's College of Engineering, recently was elected a fellow of ASM International -- the world's largest materials information society -- for his distinguished contributions to the fields of materials science and engineering.

Elected by his peers, Huang was recognized for his scientific contributions in developing a theoretical framework of nanorod growth, technological contributions in inventing metallic glue, and entrepreneurship in commercializing the metallic glue.

The research led to a new way of sticking items together, such as a computer's central processing unit to a printed circuit board, without soldering or heat.
