Areas of Study
Have you ever taken something apart just to see how it works? Do you want to learn how to design sophisticated tools, machines or engines yourself? If so, then you may want to look into studying Mechanical Engineering, one of the oldest and broadest fields of engineering.
UTSA’s Mechanical Engineering Program
The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at UTSA is ABET accredited. In this program, you’ll gain exposure to the areas of design and manufacturing, mechanics and materials, and thermal and fluid systems. You’ll be able to apply these subjects toward many industries including aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy (wind/solar/petrochemical), heating and cooling systems, machinery, materials, microelectronics, robotics, structures and more. Who knows, maybe you’ll work on designing the next Honda engine or discover a new way to capture sustainable energy!
UTSA’s University Career Center offers several resources to help students identify and develop the global skills necessary to successfully pursue and achieve lifelong career goals.
