The Aggie engineering experience is not just about what you learn, but who you become.

Colleges and universities nationwide, together with employers and entrepreneurs, recognize a great need to broaden a student’s college experience in ways that will better prepare them for their professional lives. ENGR[x] is our solution.

Aggie engineers are among the most sought-after candidates in the workforce. ENGR[x] enhances this position by requiring that our students go beyond the engineering core curriculum and participate in high-impact experiences that provide the platform to develop the professional skills that employers desire most.

Ask any Aggie engineer: "What is your 'X' factor?", and let them tell you.

ENGR[x] is a zero-credit-hour requirement for graduation beginning with the class of 2021. In order to complete the program requirement, students must participate in an approved engineering-centric activity that meets the criteria of a high impact learning experience and follow this activity with a meaningful self-reflection. Approved activities vary per engineering department. Students must speak to their advisors to assess the correct procedure for their engineering department.
