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 research institutions in the country, and one of only 10 top tier research universities in the entire state of Texas. We are driving discovery in additive manufacturing, vaccine development, 3D-printed ceramics and disease management. We offer 22 Ph.D. programs in everything from history to biomedical engineering and, last year, 42% 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.
