Civil Engineering

In 1914 utep opened its doors for the first time. Over the past century, the University’s enrollment has grown from 27 students to more than 23,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and that number continues to increase each year. Utep is one of the best colleges for engineering.Utep is dedicated to becoming the first national research university serving a 21st century student demographic. I would like to graduate with at least a masters in this field of study.

     The reason i selected this school is because i want to  graduate from a school with a good college degree, that is why i picked Utep because they are good at engineering.Washington Monthly magazine’s 2014 ranking of Utep as one of the top 10 universities in the nation, grouped with Stanford, Harvard, and   UC Berkeley. Utep has been ranked #1 three years in a row.

admission requirements


Minerpalooza is the largest pep rally at Utep and consistently voted “Best Annual Event” by El Paso Magazine. Admission is free and open to the public. This is basically the party before homecoming.

    The career path that i selected is engineering  because i think building and figuring things out is fun. My curiosity brought me to my career path because I wanted to find out what it was the big deal about engineering, I gave it a try and I found out this is what I wanted to do.

    I want to be a civil engineer because its a really good program and hopefully I will graduate with at least a masters from this field of study. utep has been known to have a good engineering program.
