Our Mission

Engineering students are challenged to network through student chapter organizations or other means to achieve their career goals throughout their college careers.

 

The Engineering BBQ Cook-off tradition serves to fortify the relationships between local engineering firms and students.  This annual event presents an excellent opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to network with professional engineers and potential employers in a fun and casual setting. The connections created promote advancement in the engineering field and progress to the community.

 

The following student chapter organizations are collaborating to host this event and raise funds for various projects and materials:

American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) chapter at UTSA has actively participated in many campus and regional events since 1989. ASCE at UTSA hosts bi-weekly meetings with civil engineering firms from San Antonio to help members connect with leaders in the civil engineering industry. In conjunction with these meetings, ASCE also hosts resume and interview workshops throughout the semester to help UTSA students develop professionally. Our strive for excellence leads us to take part in competitions such as Monster Mash Pumpkin Smash held annually at UTSA and the ASCE regional competitions of Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe. These regional contests encourage student members to work as a team by designing and constructing a finished product that will go on to compete against other universities in the nation. 

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers student chapter strives to provide its members with a social and interactive atmosphere. Members can gain valuable learning experiences by competing in projects such as steel bridges and concrete canoes. These competitions allow students to integrate their classroom knowledge into technical applications. The funds raised from this event will assist students in achieving goals set by competing in these events. 

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

 

Engineers Without Borders helps develop sustainable community-driven programs at an international and domestic level to assist communities in need.  EWB is currently implementing a potable water system for a rural community in Viña Vieja, Peru.  Students have the opportunity to apply their education and earn experience with project management and logistics.  These transformative experiences created by making a difference with less fortunate people make EWB students responsible and globally aware leaders.  All efforts and funds collected are geared towards making EWB’s current and future projects a reality.

Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE)

 

The Institute of Transportation Engineers provides opportunities in networking, education, and community service. The UTSA ITE student chapter allows students to attend regional and national conferences, provide training courses for programs such as Microstation and Synchro, and compete in the annual Traffic Bowl competition. This fundraiser will help ITE make all this possible.
