"There were many positive aspects of he program I experienced. The curriculum is set up so you can take specific courses together. However, you are not able to advance further into the courses until the previous courses were completed. The initial large class size did not allow for a more individualized type of instruction."

"I graduated from my bachelors from the university of Texas, the university have a great program call "Dual Credit" where you can take graduate courses that counts towards your bachelors and masters. I really recommend this program since it is a fast track you can start working in your master before you finish your bachelors. It will only take me one year to finish my master degree. If you are currently looking for a masters of science in an engineering field I will really recommend UTEP, it will offer you one of the best programs."

"Underrated school in my opinion; the classes, the professors and the programs available are among the best in the state. This school gave the tools and foundation to grow beyond what I had imagined for myself. I'm proud to be called a Miner, because thanks to all the progress the school has done in a near future UTEP will be an even greater university."

"The Kinesiology program at UTEP is a great program. The courses they provide for the students really help prepared me for physical therapy school, which includes exercise physiology, biomechanics, personal training, and A&P. Most of these courses really dive into the human body and the responses to exercise, injury, disease, and stress. One of my favorite courses included in the Kinesiology curriculum was Fitness Programs and Appraisals (KIN 4330). Along with the semester course work, we were assigned to work at the Kinesiology department gym where they offered exercise programs to older alumni. Our assignment was to create an exercise program based off the clients evaluation (done by the professor) and guide the client through each exercise, focusing on technique and prevention of injury. It's a very competitive program and all of these courses require students to study vigorously. And most of the professors are great with communicating with the students."

"I had a great experience, and I learned a lot. The degree plans are very interesting, and the courses help to encourage to keep learning. The University is under construction, and it is growing and improving new programs. I would improve a lot in my English skills and my writing skills because English is my second language."

"UTEP has had success in providing successful learning opportunities to the El Paso region. Staff and faculty make sure the students are well prepared to compete with peers nation wide and world wide. They are dedicated to achieve excellence and quality. However, UTEP staff and faculty are nearly impossible to get a hold of. If a meeting must be arranged, one must attempt to contact them a month in advance. Department staff are not prepared to answer all questions, thus they sent students from department to department across campus to get the ideal answer. Registration is quite frustrating, and dealing with the Financial Aid office can be a nightmare."

"Bhutanese architecture, very cool! Large foreign student population. Track & field mostly African nationals with scolarships. Campus can be smoggy - refinery within 2 miles. Campus built on foothills (therefore, the Bhutanese influence) in desert environment (El Paso, Tx). Mexican border very close. Big-city traffic."

"I've always dreamed of experiencing a college live that revolves around abundant pride and School spirit. However, coming from a small city and low economic status, I decided to attend a commute university, such as: The University of Texas at El Paso. Don't get me wrong I am proud of being a Miner, yet I must admit that some of the faculty and vast majority of the staff, is what downgrades the school. I know I'm being unfair since I'm comparing it to the popular schools, such as A&M and UT Austin, however it feels as if the school doesn't really care about student life, or even students at all. This however, doesn't happen at all colleges. To be honest, it mostly happens to the colleges of Education and Liberal Arts, which in my opinion are not worth enrolling to. On the other hand, the Science department has a different approach to students. I've been shown genuine care and concern about my issues and to top thing off, most of the faculty at the Math department could be consider eminences due to their immense Mathematical knowledge. Which is the reason why I decided to pursue a M.A at UTEP. I would like to be able to learn from the Math faculty and aspire to be as proficient as them when I become a Math professor."

"The graduate program at the University of Texas at El Paso allows for great opportunities for underrepresented minorities. The campus is growing and making an impact in the city and this is allowing for the university to become more well known within the region allowing for more programs to become available to those that wish to obtain affordable but competitive education."

"Computational Science is an interdisciplinary program at UTEP. It encompasses Computer Science, Mathematics, Science, and Technology. Graduate fit well in industry, academia as well as research National Labs. Pres-requisite in high level programming is required for your convenience. Those without will take advantage of the seminars offered by the department."

"The pros of graduate program is that you can get a better job. Chances to get a good job are high compare to just have a Bachelors degree. Computer Software is everywhere and very common in any application that we do. The cons of graduate program is that just started this program at this school, there is little support and the quality of Network is not the best yet. Since is new program, there is a lot to be done and good connection the get to the right people to be success in your projects."

"this program is fairly new and still has many kinks to work out, including its own identity. although the goals of the program could be broadly interpreted they are actually interpreted primarily in the context of El Paso-Juarez issues only, so if you are looking for discussions or content that extend beyond this portion of the Border region you are generally out of luck in this program. Also, they offer no courses to support the science strand of their doctoral program, only literacy and math."
