Texas State University Civil Engineering Program and TEI Summit
September 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT
This fall, Texas State University will begin offering a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Civil Engineering (CE). Graduates will have a strong foundation in traditional CE principles, thus preparing them for licensure. Unlike other programs, the curriculum at Texas State was holistically built upon on the concept of Technology Enhanced Infrastructure (TEI). As students progress through the curriculum, they will study device programming, secure data transfer and storage, predictive analytic tools, and application-based maintenance protocols. The primary objective of this innovative undergraduate program is to prepare students to enter the civil engineering workforce with an ability to implement “smart technology” solutions.
The TEI Summit provides Texas State with a venue to formally launch the new Civil Engineering program. It also provides the Texas Civil Engineering profession, and others in the asset management industry, a forum to hear how technology is being applied to the life cycle monitoring and maintenance of civil infrastructure. Lastly, we at Texas State believe we are contributing to the establishment of a new type of civil engineer. This Summit will provide engineering professionals an opportunity to meet students in the first class of Civil Engineers at Texas State.
The 2019 Technology Enhanced Infrastructure (TEI) Summit will take place from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM on September 5th at Texas State University STAR Park. There is no cost to attend.
