Benefits of the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Dallas College include:

  • Being co-enrolled at Texas A&M University and in Dallas College. Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program enroll in one engineering course through Texas A&M each semester. These courses are taught by Texas A&M faculty at the Brookhaven campus. All math, science and other core curriculum courses are taken through any of the Dallas College campuses;
  • Smaller student-faculty ratios in math and science courses, which build the foundation in engineering;
  • Opportunities to participate in student activities and organizations at both institutions to the fullest extent possible;
  • Substantial financial savings! Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program are charged tuition and fees by the institution through which each course is registered. Texas A&M coursework is registered in absentia which allows for a deduction in fees for services not used by students enrolled in a course conducted away from the Texas A&M University campus;
  • Guaranteed entry to one of their top choices of engineering major at the end of the second semester for engineering students who earn a minimum 3.75 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at both Texas A&M and the community college and who complete the required Entry to a Major (ETAM) coursework.
