(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.

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
All campuses will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.
