Have you ever wondered about the evolution of the home computer…how we get the gasoline we use every day…or how a traffic light works?  Get the answer to these questions and many more with a new radio series produced by the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering and South Texas Public Radio.   

The name of the program is Engineering Marvels, and it will have its debut on KEDT Radio, 90.3 FM, on Monday, October 17th at 7:04 a.m., during NPR’s Morning Edition.  The program series is the brainchild of Texas A&M-Kingsville’s engineering dean, Dr. Stephan J. Nix, and the university’s Office of Marketing and Communications. 

The purpose of the program is to not only inform listeners about the development of some of these “marvels” of engineering, but also to play a role in promoting engineering as a career choice for area high school and college students. 

When Nix approached South Texas Public Radio about helping Texas A&M-Kingsville develop the series, station officials said they were excited about the opportunity.  “Community partnerships, like the Engineering Marvels series, created with Texas A&M University-Kingsville, have proven to be a wonderful way for KEDT to deliver programming that is of specific interest to our South Texas listeners,” said Don Dunlap, president and general manager of South Texas Public Broadcasting System, Inc. 

Engineering Marvels will be heard on KEDT-FM, 90.3, in Corpus Christi, and KVRT-FM, 90.7, in Victoria at the following times: 

Mondays at 7:04 a.m.

Wednesdays at 12:05 p.m. (encore)

Fridays at 4:33 p.m. (encore)

Sundays at 10:04 a.m. (encore)
