Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering Ringing In Ceremony
On Wednesday September 12th, 77 new freshmen and transfer students took part in the annual Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering Ringing In Ceremony. This tradition began at Texas A&M University-Kingsville in 2005 as part of a freshman engineering class project. The goals were to establish an expectation of success and a commitment to fellowship with and support of TAMUK peers. New College of Engineering students “ring in to learn” every fall, and students approaching graduation “ring out to serve” every spring. Ringing in reminds students that their purpose in college is to learn as much as possible to provide a better future for themselves and others.

New Surveying Equipment
Civil engineering students in the CEEN 2113 (Surveying) course are excited about having new surveying equipment. Four new “total stations” were purchased to support the lab, which gives students hands on experience with equipment used in the civil engineering field. CEEN 2113 is required for civil engineering undergraduates and is an elective option for architectural engineering undergraduates.
Inspiring Future Javelinas
The College of Engineering outreach staff delivered classroom presentations to Saint Joseph High School in Victoria, Driscoll Middle School and King High School in Corpus Christi, and participated in the Texas A&M University Kingsville Counselors’ Update. The outreach team enjoys working with South Texas students by engaging them in STEM activities and encouraging them to become future Javelinas.
