Supporting future engineers, construction leaders, architects, planners and designers
The mission of the Margie and Bill Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design is to identify and solve grand challenges where humanity intersects the physical world. The college is a major public provider of undergraduate and graduate engineering, construction science and management, and architecture and planning education in South Texas with an enrollment exceeding 3,400 students, and one of the top colleges for producing the most Hispanic engineers nationwide. It has seen an unprecedented increase of more than 100% in graduate enrollment over the past few years.
Dean’s Fund. The Dean’s Fund provides for the enhancement of student or faculty programs as particular needs arise. Support goes to UTSA Engineering student organizations, student research and travel, student success initiatives, and faculty travel and development.
School of Architecture and Planning The SA+P was created in September 2021 and continues a successful history of transforming talented students into successful architects, interior designers, urban and regional planners, and historical preservation professionals.
The Biomedical Engineering Program The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in February 2004. The undergraduate interdisciplinary program combines engineering principles, approaches, and methodologies with biological, chemical and physical sciences in order to define and solve problems in medicine. Your generous support will assist in training students in the fundamentals of science and engineering so that they may go on to investigate fundamental questions associated with complex living systems and generate solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
The Chemical Engineering program was established with an undergraduate degree in fall 2017. The program provides an exceptional learning environment and opportunities for discovery through state-of-the-art facilities and partnerships. Your gifts will support training students to use chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics to solve engineering problems related to production, transformation, and utilization of chemicals, materials and energy.
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is committed to excellence in teaching, research and service to the community and the engineering profession. The program provides students opportunities to acquire the skills and to participate in research to advance the discipline and benefit society. Your gifts help students fully participate in an education that integrates fundamental science and engineering skills with design principles to solve complex problems.
The Construction Science and Management Program was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board effective August 1, 2008. The program has the mission to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to manage the construction process and interact effectively with project stakeholders to safely complete complex and modern construction projects on time, within budget, and meeting industry standards. Your gifts will support this mission and provide students with a wide range of professional construction industry career opportunities in the office and the field where our graduates thrive and achieve success through communication, collaboration, and leadership.
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering programs have grown and expanded in specialty recently, there are 26 full-time faculty who are renowned for their research and prestigious national and state teaching awards. Your gift ensures that a diverse student population--500 undergraduate and 180 graduate students--graduates prepared to contribute to our communities.
Department of Mechanical Engineering. The Department of Mechanical Engineering prepares students to be technically competent and socially responsible, while they acquire a solid background to perform diverse engineering functions, succeed in continued education and acquire life-long learning skills. Support goes towards providing the highest quality education and interdisciplinary research in mechanical engineering for the engineers of the future.
Klesse Alumni Council Scholarship. UTSA Alumni Association Chapters and Councils work with the UTSA Alumni Association to keep you connected to UTSA and to fund deserving young Roadrunners. With over 70% of students needing financial aid to gain access to a world-class UTSA education, scholarships are essential. Please partner with us and invest in students from your college.
Your support ensures that top students like Trinity '22 can focus on building the skills that will make them contributors to our communities. "As we get this support, we are going to remember this in the future, and hopefully, we’ll be the ones supporting future students and their efforts and making sure they make it through the way that we were helped.” Read more about her.
