The University of North Texas (UNT) is located in Denton, TX, USA. Formerly the North Texas State University, UNT is now the largest university in the north Texas area with more than 20,000 students.
It is home to the second largest college of music in the United States, and is particularly renown for its world-class jazz program. In addition, the education program is well-respected. UNT has just recently started a College of Engineering in a separate branch of its campus. Engineering fields being focused on include Aerospace Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physical Engineering, among others.
One of the highlights of UNT is the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science, an early college entrance program that annually admits 200 gifted students into full-time college studies following their 10th grade year. This program has produced numerous Intel Talent Search finalists and semi-finalists, Goldwater scholars, and National Merit Scholars.
