David L. Hirschfeld Department of Engineering

Our department offers you one of the newest and most dynamic engineering programs in Texas.

Here, you will learn from faculty who are professional engineers as you develop the real-world knowledge and skills you need to succeed in a wide variety of engineering career fields, or advance to graduate school.

Degrees

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
 Through this wide-ranging degree program, you will gain expertise in five areas of civil engineering: environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation and water resources.

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)
Through this broad and varied degree program, you will gain expertise in mechanical design, fluid and thermal science, manufacturing and production, material science, computational engineering, and dynamics, control and mechatronics.

ABET accreditation badge for Angelo State's bachelor degree in civil engineering

Our B.S.C.E. and B.S.M.E. programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Angelo State Engineering Scholars Program

Earn a scholarship of up to $10,000 to achieve your dream of becoming an engineer! When you become an ASES you’ll not only be awarded a scholarship, you’ll also receive career mentoring and STEM support providing a smooth transition into the engineering field.

Engineers use science and math to solve problems, figure out how things work, and find practical uses for new scientific discoveries. Your ASU degree is your ticket to join the thriving engineering industry, where you will design and build machines, structures, bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles and buildings. And, there are thousands of high-paying jobs waiting for you once you graduate.
