College of Engineering


UTSA’s COE is one of the nation’s leading producers of Hispanic engineers.

The University of Texas at San Antonio’s College of Engineering offers twelve graduate degree programs and is one of the nation’s leading producers of Hispanic engineers.

The college’s four departments – Biomedical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering – have prepared thousands of graduates for successful careers in the public sector, private sector and higher education.

Over the past ten years, the College of Engineering has experienced unprecedented growth as both our undergraduate and graduate student enrollment expands. Additionally, we have had a tenfold increase in extramural research funding. College of Engineering faculty are national and international leaders in communications security, biomedical engineering, aging aircraft/structures, manufacturing, water resources and transportation.

In addition to its own dedicated Engineering Building, the College of Engineering operates out of UTSA’s $84 million, 227,000-square-foot Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering Building (BSE), which opened in 2006. The BSE features high-tech classrooms, state-of-the-art laboratories and modern computing networks. The second phase of this project—the $90 million, 150,000-square-foot Applied Engineering and Technology Building (AET)—opened in the fall of 2009. And now, the College will be breaking ground on another new building in 2017.
