Thank you for considering The University of Texas at El Paso!
At UTEP, we believe education changes lives. We are a top tier public research university deeply committed to providing access to exceptional education. New students tell us that they chose UTEP because we offer high-quality academic programs at a price families can afford.
Access and excellence go hand-in-hand. UTEP is among the top 5% of universities in the country for research, and one of 11 top tier research universities in the entire state of Texas. We are driving discovery in additive manufacturing, aerospace exploration, vaccine development and disease management. We offer 23 Ph.D. programs in everything from history to biomedical engineering and, last year, 43.5% of our graduating seniors participated in on-campus research, scholarly or creative arts projects with UTEP faculty.
UTEP is located along the U.S.-Mexico border. We are a binational and bicultural University that both reflects and impacts our region of nearly 2.2 million people. The El Paso-Juárez metroplex is the fourth largest manufacturing region in North America. UTEP develops talented people for meaningful lives and is a catalyst for continued economic development in our region and beyond.
Our campus sits in the foothills of the Franklin Mountains, overlooking the Rio Grande in the Chihuahuan Desert. Our Bhutanese-inspired architecture evokes the spirit of that remote Himalayan kingdom and creates one of the most beautiful academic settings in the Southwest.
We invite you to stop by for a visit. If you have dreams and you are willing to work hard to achieve them, UTEP offers the path to get you there.
