What is 25 by 25?

Transforming engineering education

It is a transformational education program designed to increase access for qualified students to pursue engineering education at Texas A&M University and grow our total enrollment to 25,000 students by 2025. This includes students on our College Station, Galveston, Qatar and McAllen campuses, online master's degree students and students in our statewide engineering academies. The 25 by 25 initiative is not just about increasing numbers. It is also about enhancing quality and excellence.

Guiding principles:

  • Transform the educational experience
  • Increase access to engineering education
  • Deliver affordable engineering education
