Bachelor of Science in Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering
The Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department is welcoming students in its new Bachelor of Science in Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering degree.
Program Educational Objectives
Our graduates excel as engineers with solid technical skills, strength in design, and an ability to work with complex engineering systems.
Our graduates recognize the importance of and participate in continuous learning activities to advance their careers, personal interests and life goals.
Our graduates become industrial and civic leaders and demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit.
an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Accelerated Bachelor of Science, Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program
The Department also offers an Accelerated BS/MS program that allows select UTEP Undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students to use graduate classes to satisfy up to 9 standard credit hours (SCH) for the BS degree. This effectively reduces the total time to compete a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering by one semester. Students interested in this program should submit the application form by the end of their sophomore year.
