Through the WIN series of workshops and seminars, student engineers build both technical and soft skills so that they enter the workforce prepared to lead. The series also provides an interactive environment where students, faculty and industry professionals can connect to discuss emerging trends and learn from one another. WIN Wednesday is open to all engineering students, and free lunch is included! Stay tuned for a listing of fall 2018 dates!
First year engineering students are invited to participate in the Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy is a 4 year program designed for students to gain valuable leadership and professional skills needed to be successful in their future careers. It strives to empower students in their personal development and foster a sense of belonging at UTSA and in the College of Engineering.
Students are able to personalize their experience by choosing which opportunities to attend. Students must obtain a minimum of 160 points per year with at least 40 points per section to be in good standing.
Work Smarter, Not Harder:
The system has been created to reward students for what they are already doing and to challenge students to expand their thinking. If they are a student worker on campus or a COE organization member, for example, they will earn credit. Other point opportunities involve attending campus events, volunteering, undergraduate research and more! Students can also get events pre-approved for credit, if it is not notated on the guide.
After successfully completing the academy, senior students will be recognized at the Spring Tech Symposium. Students will be offered exclusive opportunities to interact with industry professionals and university personnel. Students will also be able to apply the knowledge gained from these experiences in their work in the classroom and in their professional careers.
