Students may minor in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering,  Manufacturing Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering IconComputer engineers design and develop computer hardware, software, peripheral devices, and communication networks. They are actively involved in web development by developing new features, tools, and services for the World Wide Web and the Internet. They manage the design, content and development of websites and features for the Internet including e-commerce, web streaming and Internet security.

The Computer Engineering program is offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical Engineering and offers a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree (BSCE). There are two available tracks: the Hardware track and the Software track. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Manufacturing Engineering

Manufacturing Engineering IconThe UT Pan American offers the Bachelor of Science degree in manufacturing engineering that is equivalent in scope to engineering programs at other institutions in Texas. The bachelor’s degree has accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the ABET, effective May 1996. The engineering curriculum provides a rigorous foundation for engineering practice in industrial and governmental organizations as well as for graduate studies in engineering, business administration, law and medicine. In addition, a number of graduate engineering courses are offered for professional development and a Master of Science degree in engineering-concentration manufacturing.

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering Icon

Civil engineering is providing the conveniences required for modern civilization.   Civil engineers conceive, design and oversee the construction of public works; facilities that promote and sustain the development of society and civilization.  They are the masterminds behind systems for water, structures, transportation and electricity.   The Panama Canal, Hoover Dam, Sear’s Tower and Golden Gate Bridge are a few examples of landmark civil engineering projects that provide transportation, flood control, water and electric power to society.  You don’t have to travel the world to see a civil engineering feat; their work is evident in every aspect of modern life.  Clean water is available to drink at the turn of a tap and electricity to power lights and computers at the flick of a switch.  The facilities to treat millions of gallons a day of drinking water and waste water, to control storm water drainage, the roads that allow you to comfortably travel from home to work or school, the airports that make it possible for you to be virtually anywhere in the world tomorrow are in every village, town and city.  Civil engineers plan for the growth of communities, the preservation of our environment, and the well being of mankind.  Civil engineers impact the lives people.
