Welcome to ME

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a wealth of opportunities in virtually all industries such as: aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy (wind/solar/petrochemical), heating & cooling systems, machinery, materials, microelectronics, robotics, structures, and others.

The UTSA M.E. program prepares students for work in these industries through a concentration of focused classes in the areas of design and manufacturing, mechanics and materials, and thermal and fluid systems. These classes are supported through a sequence of labs with experiments such as: a Rankine-cycle power generation, rotordynamics, thermal heat exchangers, diesel engine efficiency, aerodynamics using a wind tunnel, and others.

Excellent computer facilities are available with state-of-the-art software products including: Ansys, Labview, Matlab, and Solidworks. A 192-core cluster supercomputer is available for computing as well as three student labs equipped with Windows-based PCs. In addition, a recently-developed Advanced Visualization Lab is now available to students. The UTSA M.E. program is an ABET accredited program, last receiving accreditation in 2010. A number of professional organization student chapters are available at UTSA including ASME, ASHRAE, SAE, SWE, MAES and others... More.

Oil/Gas Track Outline Certificat Program Approved

Post date: 01/26/2014
Great News! UTSA Mechanical Engineering has just been approved the creation of the Oil/Gas Certificate Program. This program is designed to prepare mechanical engineering degree seeking students and non-degree seeking students with mechanical engineering background with the fundamental engineering knowledge necessary for successful careers in Oil/Gas Industry. It certifies to employers that students awarded the certificate have completed coursework essential to Oil/Gas industry.

The Oil/Gas Certificate Program is a 15 semester credit hours experience. It will serve students with a wide variety of backgrounds, including non-degree seeking students, undergraduates in a baccalaureate degree program in mechanical engineering, and even non-UTSA students. Undergraduates can contact the Mechanical Engineering Certificate Program Advisor to request an approval from the Certificate Program Advisor and the Dean of the College of Engineering. Non-UTSA students must apply and express their desire for this certificate to be admitted to UTSA as a non-degree seeking student. Then, as non-degree seeking undergraduates, they follow the same steps as undergraduates (mentioned above). Graduate students may enroll in the undergraduate certificate programs, provided they meet the requirements for enrollment in a graduate certificate program.

For more information about this program and its eligibility requirements, please read the full announcement or contact Dr. Karimi at (210)458-5514
