UTSA College of Engineering is hosting the 2015-ASEE-GSW Section meeting March 25-27 at the historic Menger hotel in downtown San Antonio, Texas. In addition to presentations by faculty and students, the conference offers an exciting plenary session and excellent workshops.
“The theme of this year’s conference, Challenges Facing Engineering Eduction, is particularly appropriate because at UTSA, the College of Engineering has experienced rapid growth in the past several years,” said Ricardo Romo, UTSA president. “The college is expected to continue to grow to meet the growing needs for engineers in our communities.”
More than 150 attendees will be attending the conference. The conference allows those engaged in the practice of educating future engineers to share ideas and best practices to improve the overall educational experience for students.
“There are many challenges to be faced, but there are also many innovative solutions being developed and implemented to meet these challenges,” said JoAnn Browning, dean of the College of Engineering. “I am confident that participation in this
conference will help promote collaboration and innovation in engineering education. We aspire to better our profession with this conference by promoting excellence in instruction, research, public service, and practice, and it is an honor for the College
of Engineering at UTSA to be hosting our colleagues from around the region.”
