University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)


The University of Texas at EL Paso (UTEP) is the second oldest academic component of the University of Texas System. It is set amidst the rugged foothills of the Rocky Mountains on the U.S. - Mexico border in the world's largest bi-national, metropolitan area. UTEP is uniquely poised, geographically, academically and culturally, to play a significant role in the global economy.

UTEP continues to gain momentum in providing a quality, affordable education to a growing number of students who turn to UTEP to better their lives and their communities. The Spring 2009 semester continues an upward trend in attracting and retaining students at UTEP, with a record spring enrollment of 19,156- an increase of nearlt 2% over 2008.

UTEP, the second largest Hispanic majority University in the United States, was one of only six institutions in the nation recognized as a Model Institution for Excellence (MIE) by the National Science Foundation in 1995. MIE is a ground breaking program to support colleges and universities that will serve as model for improving the quantity and quality of science, engineering and mathematics graduates, enhancing diversity in those fields.

UTEP is meeting the needs of businesses by preparing the next generation of professionals and leaders from this region. UTEP graduates are eagerly recruited by some of the nation's top corporation, including Delphi, Boeing, Ernst and Young, EDS, Nortel, Raytheon, Columbia Healthcare, Tenet Healthcare, and numerous federal agencies including the FBI and NASA.

The University of Texas System designated UTEP for a location of the Institute for Manufacturing and Materials Management and the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center. The Center for Electronic Manufacturing provides specific input in all aspects of electronic manufacturing.

Today the highly regarded College of Engineering offers a variety of Pre-College activities (the ExiTES program which is supported by NASA), the National Engineers Week, the Freshman Summer program, undergraduates and graduate research opportunities as well as internships and cooperative education programs.

UTEP's scope and importance have continued to grow. Recently, the College of Business received full accreditation for its undergraduate and graduate business and accounting programs, sharing this distinction with fewer than 50 of the 1,300 business schools in the country.

UTEP offers 70 bachelor's and 62 masters degrees as well as 14 doctoral degrees in:

  • Geological Science
  • Computer Engineering
  • Materials Science and Engineering
  • Environment Science and Engineering
  • Biology
  • History
  • Interdisciplinary Health Sciences
  • International Business
  • Psyhology
  • Education Leadership & Administration
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Rhetoric & Composition

Enrollment at the doctoral level- a 13% increase over last spring- is indicative of the progress UTEP has made in developing relevant Ph. D. programs that provide students opportunities to advance in their careers and at the same time provide the local, regional and national workforce with highly qualified professionals.
