Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
Make the next big discovery
We are builders and creators, pushing the boundaries of what human ingenuity can do. You’re an analytical thinker, and you like to know how things work — then you try to make them better. You will find countless opportunities to feed your curiosity and imagination here. You can immerse yourself in green research to protect the planet or help develop new technology for a mission to Mars. This is your chance to be at the cutting edge of what’s new and what’s next.

Engineering a Better World
Dane Bumgardner’s love of solving problems led him to the Ingram School of Engineering. Now, he’s an industrial engineer, one of many Bobcats who build a better world each day.
Beyond the Classroom
Spring Lake and The Meadows Center: An Unparalleled Ecological Treasure
Humans have been drawn to the waters that feed Spring Lake for millennia, and with good reason. It’s home to endangered species, anthropological artifacts dating back more than 12,000 years, and some of the purest, crystal-clear water on earth. The lake is also the largest living laboratory on our campus and home to the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, where researchers promote sustainable management of water systems. Students here are performing meaningful research to help provide science-based solutions for the most pressing water resource challenges facing Texas and the world beyond.
Deciphering Signals, Engineering Solutions
The world is full of signals — changes in temperature, pressure, frequency — and Texas State University’s Dr. Semih Aslan, associate professor of engineering, can read them. Aslan uses sensors and signal-processing methods to collect and translate raw data into vital information for addressing engineering challenges. One focus of his work is designing systems for better, more efficient stewardship of our natural resources, such as solar energy and water.
