The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved Texas Tech University's proposed doctor of philosophy in wind science and engineering, which is among the first of such programs in the U.S., according to the university.

The degree, which incorporates study of both wind energy and windstorm damage, will be taught through Texas Tech's colleges of engineering, architecture, and arts and sciences and will be administered by the graduate school.

The university's Wind Science and Engineering Research Center is already host to a National Science Foundation integrative graduate education and research traineeship, which uses facilities such as a wind tunnel, wind cannon, 200-meter tower, high-resolution storm instrumentation equipment and nearby wind farms, Texas Tech University adds.
