TourUvalde, TX, May 8 - Southwest Texas Junior College pre-engineering students participated in a campus tour of Angelo State University (ASU) on April 27, which was led by their engineering faculty and staff.

Dr. William Kitch engineering professor began the session with a tour of the new facilities currently being constructed at ASU, in particular, the Hunter Strain Engineering Lab.

Students also engaged in an in-depth discussion on the environmental impact of both natural and man-made occurrences while touring the fluids laboratory.

Dr. Daniel Castaneda assistant engineering professor completed the tour with several test demonstrations in the concrete lab.


Southwest Texas Junior College and Angelo State University began offering a Civil Engineering Career Pathway due to an increase in employment opportunities for civil engineers in the state.

“By first completing an Associate of Science in Engineering Science degree at SWTJC, students can save an average of $40,000 when compared to the cost of the same education at a state or private school,” said Oscar Gaytan, STEM Outreach Coordinator.

For more information on the Civil Engineering Career Pathway, please contact Gaytan, at oegaytan@swtjc.edu.
