What are Professors of Practice?

Imagine sitting in a Texas A&M University aerospace engineering class. You raise your hand to ask your professor a question about zero gravity. Your professor answers your question with a personal anecdote. That's because she is a former astronaut with five spaceflight experiences. This is what you can expect when you learn from a Texas A&M College of Engineering professor of practice. 

College of Engineering professors of practice are professional engineers and industry leaders. Our professors of practice bring years of real-world experience to their classrooms. They add tremendous value to our students' engineering education. That’s why hiring professors of practice is a major component of our 25 by 25 initiative.


Professors of practice teach undergraduate, master’s and doctorate level courses. They help develop new curriculum that reflects the latest industry technology and practices.


Professors of practice serve as research advisors and principal investigators for research grants. They also act as industry liaisons to identify research topics and research support. They publish in professional journals and conference materials, as well.


Professors of practice serve as student mentors, curriculum advisors and faculty advisors to student professional organizations. They also serve as professional society officers and members.
