AggiE_Challenge was established by the Texas A&M University College of Engineering in 2012 to promote multidisciplinary collaborations of undergraduates across engineering majors through team research projects. Engineering undergraduate students, starting at the freshman level, may participate in multidisciplinary and vertically integrated teams. Within the teams, the undergraduates work with faculty and graduate students on research projects related to engineering grand challenges facing our society.

Since 2012, more than 1,600 engineering students have participated in the program, and 43% of them participated for two or more semesters. The program has attracted a diverse group of students in majors, classifications and demographics.

Program teams have participated in regional, national and global events.

Participate in the AggiE_Challenge

  • How do I choose a project?
    • Review current projects on this website and identify a project of interest that is open to your major.
    • Identify the course section for the project of interest.
  • How do I enroll?
    • In the Howdy portal, during open registration, register for the ENGR 491 section dedicated to the project of interest.
  • How many credit hours can I sign up for?
    • Students may register for 1 or more credit hours. If interested in registering for more than 1 credit hour, please contact the faculty in charge to express your interest in participating in additional credit hours.
  • Does course credit earned through AggiE_Challenge count towards my degree?
    • It depends on the department. Therefore, we encourage students to discuss it with their academic advisor.
