THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT EL PASO (UTEP) is one of the largest and most successful Hispanic-Serving Institutions in the country, with a student body that is 83 percent Hispanic. It enrolls nearly 25,000 students in 168 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in nine colleges and schools.

With more than $108 million in total annual research expenditures, UTEP is an R1 research university. The Interdisciplinary Research Building, completed in 2020, adds 150,000 square feet of research space where students and faculty members from a variety of disciplines share workspaces and laboratories. A new Advanced Manufacturing and Aerospace facility will be the next to break ground, supporting the new bachelor’s degree in aerospace and aeronautical engineering.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Franklin Mountains in the Chihuahuan Desert, UTEP is situated at the heart of the U.S.-Mexico border. It is a top tier doctoral research university with a majority Mexican American student population, including many first-generation college students.

UTEP is also designated as a community engaged campus by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. The university provides students with multiple opportunities for community engagement, as well as study abroad, student employment, undergraduate research, and leadership development. These experiences increase confidence, enhance personal and professional skills, and equip students with a competitive advantage when they graduate and enter the workforce or pursue a graduate degree.
