COE in The Community

Engineering in the local community

Take a look and see how The College of Engineering is getting out into the San Antonio community to educate and inform the public about the great things that are happening at the college.


Coe in the community COE’s assistant director for engineering outreach Brandy Alger met with a group of students in the Math Intensive Program at Northwest Vista College this fall. UTSA and the Alamo Colleges have a strong partnership, and the majority of the students who attended Alger’s presentation are engineering majors and plan to transfer to UTSA.
Coe in the community Alger presented at Forester Elementary’s Career Day earlier this fall. We hope Brandy convinced all of the 4th grade to come to UTSA and study to become engineers!
Coe in the community COE held two weeks of Engineering Summer Camps for high school students this summer. Camp attendees had the opportunity to experience engineering through hands-on workshops, engaging academic lectures, research lab tours, and participating in friendly competitions, like the newspaper chair building competition, shown here.
Coe in the community UTSA College of Engineering teamed up with BHP Billiton to provide free energy camps to children in Cuero, Texas, this fall. The camps were taught at the DeWitt County Boys and Girls Club by COE’s Interactive Technology Experience Center (iTEC) staff and BHP Billiton volunteers.
Coe in the community Master’s students Mohan Muppidi and Satish Vaishnav fly a remote control drone at the San Antonio Children’s Museum’s Come Fly with Us event at the museum’s downtown location this fall. Both are pursuing their degrees in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Systems and Control.
