Welcome to the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering

A Message From the Dean

Alam Mohammad

I am delighted to welcome you to the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering, the premier engineering college in South Texas. The college has been offering engineering degree programs since 1936 and has graduated thousands of students who have or had very successful professional careers. It is not just a college of engineering; it is an 80+ year tradition of excellence. Currently, the college enrolls nearly 3200 students which is about 35% of the campus enrollment.

Engineering is one of the most sought-after disciplines among all academic programs. Engineers utilize the theoretical concepts learned in science, mathematics, and related fields for real life applications. Besides engineering, students might consider pursuing careers in computer science and industrial technology management programs. Graduates from these programs work hand-in-hand with engineering professionals in a variety of fields with significant impact on our daily life. Read more»
