Mission Statement

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is “to provide excellent educational and research opportunities to our undergraduate and graduate students who will contribute to the technological and economic development of the community, the region and the nation.”

“The faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering values excellence in teaching, research, and service to the community and the profession. Our students learn to be technically competent and socially responsible, while they acquire a solid background to perform diverse engineering functions; to succeed in graduate education; and acquire life-long learning skills.”

Educational Objectives

The Mechanical Engineering Program prepares students to attain the following program educational objectives a few years after graduation:

  1. Have engineering or other careers in industry, government, and or will pursue advanced graduate or professional degrees.
  2. Apply their engineering knowledge and skills to their professional careers.
  3. Continue to advance their knowledge, communication and leadership skills using technology, continuing education, problem solving, and by serving technical or professional societies.
  4. Apply their understanding of societal, environmental, and ethical issues to their professional activities.

Student Outcomes

The Student outcomes for the mechanical engineering program at UTSA are:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
