 SAC Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

 

The SURP Program is an opportunity for San Antonio College STEM students to form a research team comprised of 2-4 members and develop  an undergraduate research project to perform over 10-week this summer.  The summer 2014 SURP Program will run from June 9 - August 15, 2014 and teams are expected to present their findings in the FALL at the MESA Center.  In addition, participants are expected to remain in academic good standing, dedicate approximately 15 hrs/wk to the project, and adhere to the commitments established under their project agreement contract (including but not limited to submitting a PowerPoint Presentation, Poster and Research Paper).  Students that successfully complete the program have the opportunity to earn up at a $1,000 - 1,500 stipend funded through our MSEIP and LS-AMP CIMA grants.

In order to apply to the program students should:

  • Form a team of 2-4 members interested in a similar field of study
  • Identify a potential faculty advisor (see Mrs. Analisa Sengele if you need help)
  • Submit a SURP Proposal Application to Mrs. Analisa Sengele  by the deadline May 5th, 2014

 UTSA - Transfer Academy for Tomorrow's Engineers (TATE)

 The UTSA College of Engineering has formed a collaborative partnership with the Alamo Colleges predicated on intervention strategies designed to increase the academic success of first-generation students who have been traditionally underserved. Both institutions are committed to preparing students by creating paths of study that provide a seamless transition from Alamo Colleges to the College of Engineering at UTSA. They acknowledge the fact that this partnership represents an unprecedented opportunity for a select cohort of transfer students and will require ongoing collaboration

Three Goals: 

  • Form a collaborative partnership between UTSA College of Engineering and Alamo Colleges to increase the number of first-generation students who pursue an engineering degree.
  • Address Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships as they pertain to engineering education at UTSA.
  • Recruit, educate, and graduate more first-generation engineering majors. 

The TATE Program will select students based upon the completed student application, student resume, transcript and personal statement. In order to apply, students must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of a 2.80 and intend to transfer to UTSA and complete a degree in engineering.
