(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.

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.
