AggiE-Vet program celebrates Veterans Day with luncheon

AggiE-Vet, a program that helps veterans become engineers once they've left the military, will celebrate Veterans Day today (Nov. 11) with a luncheon for program participants.

Given Texas A&M's history as a military-friendly institution, AggiE-Vet (Enhancing Veterans' Success in Engineering at Texas A&M University) started in anticipation of an increased number of veterans seeking education opportunities. The program supports veterans who seek engineering degrees at Texas A&M, partnering closely with Blinn College, Fort Hood and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES).

AggiE-Vet aims to create communities of interest for veterans to encourage collaboration at Texas A&M and with its partners to enhance the educations experience and number of veterans pursuing bachelor's degrees at Texas A&M. Partnerships with Blinn College, the Fort Hood Education Center and industry allows for additional recruitment and financial support for veterans.

Dr. Cesar Malave, associate dean of engineering, is the PI for the project. For more information, contact Melissa Walden at mwalden@tamu.edu.
