Share this Story

(March 21, 2011)--With the ultimate goal of securing external funding to support new multidisciplinary energy research, the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research and the UTSA Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute will have a mixer for UTSA researchers from 3 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 30 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the Main Campus.

UTSA scholars from all academic disciplines are invited to attend the mixer, which will connect collaborators interested in conducting research focused on photovoltaics and electric transportation with funding opportunities.

The research rally will kick off with a "speed-dating session" allowing scholars to meet and learn more about their colleagues from across UTSA's campuses. Subsequently, the Office of the Vice President for Research will present a discussion of the new Energy Research Grant program, a $100,000 seed-funding initiative to support energy research on a variety of topics including, but not limited to:

  • large-scale solar photovoltaic deployment
  • energy storage/battery technology
  • the economics of transitioning to electric vehicles
  • electric grid issues (e.g.: managing demand response with intermittent energy sources)
  • electric transportation policies, standards, procedures, challenges, consumer responses and economics

Researchers attending the March 30 rally should bring 20 five-by-seven-inch index cards to the speed-dating session. Cards should include the researcher's contact information, research interests, a photo (if desired) as well as a list of what the researcher is looking for in collaboration.

Reservations to attend the March 30 Roadrunner Research Rally are required and should be directed to Jim Massaro at 210-458-6691.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
