            2011-2012, Master of Arts (MA), Leadership Studies

            I greatly benefited from UTEPs colaborative efforts with the United States Army Sergeant's Major Academy, by participating in their Masters in Leadership Graduate program. Was very impressed with the professionalism and expertise of all my professors, and wholeheartedly recommend anyone who has the opportunity and interest; to consider UTEP for your graduate studies.

            1990-1993, Bachelor, Electrical Engineer

            THANK YOU UTEP ! I am proud to say that I have seen many great minds and hard workers with UTEP degrees. To me the university had a great balance between being large enough to teach you survival skills while still being personal enough that professors become mentors. I really enjoy going back a couple times a year and greeting old professors that still remember my name. It has remained very affordable while investing in improvements to the campus. UTEP has expanded and upgraded the campus to the point I now need a map to get around. Now you can get a Bachelor in Engineering Leadership at UTEP, to me this is a very exciting program that will fill a critical gap between engineering and management. There is a great diversity, both social and economic, in the student population; and I believe that is one of the qualities that set UTEP above the rest. And who else can boast about having a football stadium that is carved into the side of a mountain. Francisco J Ortiz Proud 1993 Electrical Engineering graduate, GO MINERS !
