The Texas A&M University College of Engineering requires that each student have the following:


Minimum laptop requirements:
  • Intel i7 or i9 processor
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • 512 GB storage system
  • Discrete graphics card
  • Webcam
  • NOTE: Chromebooks, iPads and similar devices do not meet the operating system and hardware requirements to run engineering applications.

Smartphone (for use in proctored testing for online courses)

    Minimum smartphone requirements:

  • Camera
  • Suitable data plan to support video streaming

As an alternative to a smartphone, students may use a USB based web camera with a tripod or stand, capable of being used in a similar fashion to a smartphone for use in proctored testing associated with online courses.

Your engineering education requires a computer to complement the course instruction. Undergraduate students entering the College of Engineering are strongly encouraged to purchase from this list of recommended and supported devices. Doing so guarantees performance, as well as hardware and software support throughout your years here as an engineering student. Should you choose a device that is not on this list, please know that we cannot guarantee that the required software will run effectively or that our IT team will be able to support your device. No student will be denied admission to Texas A&M University based on an inability to purchase a computer.

*macOS Advisory: A large percentage of engineering applications require the Windows operating system. These applications will not run natively on macOS. While some Macs can be configured to run both Windows and macOS, doing so decreases battery run-time and the amount of available hard drive space. The use of Macs with the M1 SOC has not been certified to run native Windows engineering applications.
