Naima Rivas, Engineer

Meet Naima

Soon after I arrived at UTA, I joined the Formula SAE race team. We were ranked in the top five in the world and first in the United States in 2014. I was the project lead on the design and construction of a fully electric race car that my teammates and I are competing with this year.

Though I'm majoring in electrical engineering, I'm applying my knowledge to much more than electronics.

Mila Hunt, Engineer

Meet Mila

At UT Arlington, I was able to do hands-on research when I served as an undergraduate research assistant in Dr. David Wetz’s Pulsed Power and Energy Lab. Our work will eventually enable the production of safer and more efficient batteries, thereby making renewables more practical.

I’m majoring in electrical engineering, while also earning a certificate in translation and localization from the Department of Modern Languages. Combining my skills, I’ll be able to help people and companies connect across the world through computer-aided translation.

Cynthia Rodriguez, Engineer

Meet Cynthia

UT Arlington gave me the tools I needed to earn several prestigious internships. When I graduate, I’ll have real work experience to help prepare me for my future career.

During my internship with Atlas Copco, I was able to implement a system in their assembly process that allowed for faster production. At Elbit Systems of America, I looked at forecasting budgets for different programs. Now, my future employer will see that I’m ready to hit the ground running.

Dr. Melanie Sattler, P.E.

Meet Dr. Melanie Sattler, P.E.

I wanted to do something to address environmental issues. Engineering appealed to me because you actually solve problems. Rather than just studying a problem, I wanted to be able to do something about it. It's a career where you can really get up and feel like you're making a difference, and that's what I wanted to do with my career. I wanted to make a difference.
