School District Research
The purpose of this research is to extend and improve student outreach to UTEP’s surrounding areas, finding school districts with similar economic characteristics to those of El Paso. We have evaluated Median household income, per capita income and poverty level in various counties belonging to Texas, Arizona, South California and New Mexico. After analyzing the school districts, an interactive map was created to visualize where these districts are located.
The department of Mechanical Engineering aims to attract more students from other regions to UTEP and the College of Engineering, in collaboration with the Mike Loya Center for Innovation and Commerce. This effort has led to the discovery of segments of the community that could benefit from the growth and impact UTEP can offer, aligning ourselves to our mission of education and access.
