(Feb. 19, 2013) -- The UTSA College of Engineering will host its first Texas Energy Expo, a student-run career fair, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Tuesday, March 5 in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the UTSA Main Campus.
Spearheaded and organized entirely by students within the College of Engineering (COE) Student Council and the College of Business Student Council, the objective of the career fair is to connect companies operating in South Texas and the Eagle Ford Shale with some of the best and brightest science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and business students in Texas.
The students are soliciting sponsorship and participation from businesses in the energy sector.
Training the next generation of problem solvers, UTSA is consistently producing a diverse group of highly competitive future leaders in the STEM and business fields, many of whom work full-time, take on internships and conduct research while earning their degrees.
The UTSA College of Business and College of Engineering are ranked the No. 7 and No. 5 graduate programs in the nation for Hispanics by Hispanic Business magazine.
If your business is interested in participating in the inaugural Texas Energy Expo and having access to some of Texas’ best and brightest, contact Jana Kennelly in the UTSA College of Engineering at 210-458-7766 by Feb. 26.
All proceeds from the expo not used to cover fair costs will support student organizations, multi-disciplinary senior capstone projects, and student attendance at major national STEM and business conferences.
