A Proud Heritage

Engineering has been part of Texas A&M University since the university opened in 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. Today, the College of Engineering is the largest college on the College Station campus.

Achievements and Recognition

Our college is consistently ranked among the nation's top public programs. We also rank among the top universities in the number of National Merit Scholars, nationally recognized faculty and funded research.

Our students, faculty and alumni are making a difference worldwide through innovation and service. Technologies developed through our research programs are shaping our world, and our education extends far beyond the classroom, engaging industry partners and practitioners to create real-world opportunities for our students.

The 25 by 25 initiative began in 2013 in response to the national call for more engineering graduates. The guiding principles are to transform the educational experience, increase access to engineering education, and deliver affordable engineering education.

Come meet the people, visit the facilities, and see for yourself what sets Texas A&M University's College of Engineering apart. The Texas A&M Visitor Center can help you schedule a visit, provide directions, and assist you with campus maps and parking information.
