The teachers in my engineering classes were phenomenal. They would make sure every single student in that class was on board with it before moving on to the next topic. We did a lot of interesting projects like creating a turbine with a 3D printer. The hands-on activities made it easier for me to learn a lot of things, and I always felt I could go up to the teachers and talk to them and ask them questions.

Julio Espinosa

Sky's the Limit

When Julio Espinosa began his engineering degree at UMHB, he wasn鈥檛 sure where it was going to take him. But along the way, he found himself drawn to computer engineering and became interested in the military defense industry. Today he鈥檚 a software engineer at Lockheed, working with system engineers and hardware engineers to deliver new capabilities and features on military jets. He says 九色视频gave him the start he needed. 鈥淥ne thing I really enjoyed about my engineering courses was the small size of my classes,鈥 Julio said. 鈥淚 got to know my professors very well; they were always approachable and willing to meet with me outside of class. I had a great experience, and the courses prepared me to succeed in the real world after college.鈥

What are some jobs for engineering?

Why study Engineering at UMHB?

The BS in Engineering prepares students to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam as the first step toward professional licensure as an engineer. Graduates may certify in general engineering or sit for the exams in the more specialized areas of mechanical or electrical engineering.

Students may collaborate on research projects with a diverse group of 九色视频faculty and gain experience in specialized areas of engineering as they work on projects involving photovoltaic-powered vehicles, fuel cells, autonomous quadcopters, biomedical design, and more.

Multidisciplinary internship opportunities allow engineering students to graduate as experienced, well-rounded complex problem-solvers who have a distinct marketplace advantage.

Majors may participate in study abroad trips to locations such as London, Paris, and Munich. Trips focus on science and engineering museums, historical sites, and research centers such as the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.
