University of Texas at El Paso

The university of Texas at El Paso first opened in 1914.  This university is located along the border of the united states and Mexico.  UTEP started as a school of mines back in 1914.  UTEP won the NCAA championship in 1966 under the head coach of Don Haskins.  This was the only national title that UTEP has won.

I chose to research this university  because UTEP is in the city I live in.  A long term goal that I would like to achieve is becoming a UTEP miner.  I would like to become a mechanical engineer and UTEP would help me become one because this is a good school for engineering.

The career path I selected is engineering, when I grow up I want to become a mechanical engineer.  Working as an engineer in El Paso would make a long term goal become true.  Ever since I was a little kid, I liked building things with my hands.  This is why I think becoming an engineer would be suited perfect for me.

Mechanical engineers make parts for machines.  Anything from a screw to an engineer of a car.  Being a mechanical engineer requires patients because making parts for machines takes time.  UTEP is one of the best universities to get a degree in engineering from because it is a good school that focuses mainly on that one career path.
