UTSA's Graduate School Viewbook


  • The UniverSiTy Of TeXAS AT SAn AnTOniO



  • Damon Cardenas is the Fall 2011 recipient of the Louise and Michael Beldon Doctoral Scholarship, a competitive scholarship awarded each

    year to a Texas resident entering a UTSA doctoral program. Damon will enter the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering, a program offered

    jointly by UTSA and the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.

    Cardenas discovered a strong interest in the neurological basis for human paralysis while obtaining his electrical engineering degree.

    One of the most prominent issues on my mind is the occurrence of paralysis, he said. I cannot imagine what it would be like to live life unable to move my arms or legs, or worse, nothing below my neck.

    According to Cardenas, pursuing his graduate work at UTSA is appealing because of the universitys commitment to research

    excellence. Through engineering, there is the potential to change the world with the development of new technology and physical techniques,

    he said. The changes you make are typically specific to the field of engineering, and I would like to focus my research in the field of micro-imaging. The scholarship allows me the freedom to concentrate on my

    work and gives me a significant boost in my motivation and inspiration to become a successful researcher.

    Attracted by the scholarship support he was awarded, Cardenas also had personal reasons for continuing his graduate studies at UTSA.

    San Antonio has always been my home, and despite anticipating future travels through the course of my professional and educational careers, it will always be my home, he said. I come from a family who claim UTSA as their alma mater, including my parents, and I would love to contribute

    to our familys Roadrunner legacy of achievements.
