Below are some of the benefits that students will enjoy at the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Tarrant County College:

  • Students will be co-enrolled at Texas A&M University and the Tarrant County 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 Tarrant County College. Math and science courses must also be taken at Tarrant County College. All other core curriculum courses can be taken at Tarrant County College.
  • Mathematics and science courses — which build the foundation for engineering skills — have smaller student-faculty ratios, allowing students to connect more closely with their professors.
  • Students will have opportunities to participate in student activities and organizations at both institutions to the fullest extent possible.
  • Students enjoy substantial financial savings. 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 campus in College Station.
  • Students who earn a minimum 3.75 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at both the Tarrant County College and Texas A&M and who complete the required coursework will have automatic admission to the first-choice engineering major at the end of the second semester.
