TExas Pre-FreshmAn Engineering Program (TexPREP)
The Dr. Manual P. Berriozabal a professor of mathematics at UTSA, founded the Pre-Freshman Engineering Program (PREP) in 1979 to identify high achieving middle and high school students with an interest in becoming scientist and engineers and to help them enter these fields. Since 1989, Prep has replicated 17 Texas cities as the Texas Pre-freshman Engineering program (TexPrep).
TexPrep is an academically intense, mathematics-based, summer program. The program identifies achieving middle and high school students with interest and potential for careers in engineering, science, technology, and other mathematics-related areas and reinforces them in pursuit of these fields.
TexPrep focuses on the development of abstract reasoning and problem solving skills, as well as the application of this knowledge, through course work, team projects, class presentations, and examinations. In addition to a strong academic curriculum, TexPrep provides career awareness speakers, field trips, and courses taught by college instructors, high school teachers, military officers and mentoring by undergraduate students.
