A Structured High School to Engineering Undergraduate Pipeline for Hispanic Females A comprehensive strategy supported by the US Department of Education to increase (1) the number of full-time, engineering degree seeking Hispanic females from ~5.5% to 12%, (2) their retention rates from ~16% to 45%, and (3) their graduation rates in a 6-year period from
Lift-Off: Curriculum Improvement for Engineering Minority Engineering Education The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and San Antonio College (SAC) are partnering to infuse/enrich their engineering and earth science curricula with NASA-related technology and research, to give students from both institutions research and education experiences at NASA, and to improve the 2+2 pipeline for
A Comprehensive Strategy Based on Established Best-Practices for Increasing Female Minority Participation and Success in Engineering This project focuses on a cohort of incoming engineering freshmen students each year. The first cohort of students (summer 2010 cohort) will be provided opportunities to interact with peers and professors. They will be assigned projects along with mentors.
Transforming Engineering Programs in Order to Improve Retention and Graduation Rates This is a collaborative three-year project between the Colleges of Engineering, Sciences, Business, and Education and Human Development at UTSA (September 1, 2009—August 31, 2012). This project uses proven pedagogical techniques in teaching mathematics to the engineering students that should result in the most
Applied Mathematics and Physics with Engineering Application As a result of an agreement between CPS Energy, UTSA and several San Antonio school districts, we have created two introductory courses in mathematics and physics with engineering applications. These courses are taught to area high school students who wish to continue their study in the field of
Engineering Core Curriculum Redesign for Increasing Preparedness and Retention We aspire to incorporate the ideas from the newly developed course, known as EGR 101 “Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications” at Wright State University by Professor Klingbeil. The WSU model concludes with the development of a revised engineering math sequence, to be taught by the math
