Engaging our Community

Patrick Benavidez, doctoral student in electrical engineering, gives a tour of the Autonomous Control Engineering Laboratory (ACE Lab) to a group of students from the Young Women’s Leadership Academy in Fort Worth. The school brought 85 sophomore and junior students who were interested in engineering to campus to tour UTSA and learn more about the programs offered in the College of Engineering. The ACE lab is directed by Mo Jamshidi, Lutcher Brown Endowed Chair and professor in electrical and computer engineering

A student from Young Women’s Leadership Academy tours the UTSA Advanced Visualization Laboratory (VizLab). The VizLab allows researchers from all disciplines of art, science, and engineering to conduct simulation and visualization research to better understand complex phenomena and translate data into images on large-scale and high resolution visualization walls or other display devices.

Members of the ACE Lab show off their drones during an event at the San Antonio Children’s Museum earlier this spring.

During Spring Break, UTSA’s Interactive Technology Experience Center (iTEC), hosted hundreds of school-aged children the UTSA Main Campus for the center’s spring break camps. The camps focus on getting children interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on activities. The instructors at iTEC go beyond the classroom and understand that kids learn more when they are excited about the topics being discovered. The iTEC mission is to inspire youth by creating an environment where they can understand how engineering, science, and technology shape our lives and the future of the world.

The San Antonio Masters Leadership Program, a group that provides proven leaders with a unique opportunity to learn firsthand about the issues and needs in Bexar County, visited UTSA Main Campus this spring. The group had the chance to tour two of the College of Engineering’s labs, while learning more about engineering at UTSA.

Dr. JoAnn Browning, dean of the College of Engineering, presented at the Texas Society of Professional Engineers-Bexar Chapter Proclamation Breakfast at the Norris Conference Center to kick of Engineers Week 2015. The event was attended by local professional engineers as well as over a hundred high school students who have an interest in engineering.
