UNT is helping regional manufacturers bring more effectiveness and sustainability to their operations as the first university in the North Texas region to join the U.S. Department of Energy's Industrial Assessment Center program. The UNT Industrial Assessment Center (UNTIAC) housed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Discovery Park is funded through a $1.75 million U.S. Department of Energy grant that will be eligible for renewal every five years.

In addition to providing assessments and conducting research in the energy and manufacturing areas, the center also will involve students in conducting its work, training the next generation of engineers and leaders in these areas. UNTIAC complements the existing Center for Agile and Adaptive Additive Manufacturing at the university.
