With so many majors to choose from, we don’t ask you to make up your mind during your first year. Instead, you’ll follow a common general engineering curriculum that is designed to help you integrate into the Texas A&M University College of Engineering while allowing you to explore all 22 degree options.

After completing the specific coursework required for the Entry to a Major (ETAM) process, which can be as early as your second semester in the College of Engineering, you’ll let us know which majors interest you. 

Your academic advisors are here to guide you. You are strongly encouraged to consult with your assigned general engineering or engineering academy academic advisor to ensure that you are prepared to apply for your preferred majors.

How it Works

The ETAM process uses a priority method that places you in your highest ranked major possible based on your academic performance, content in your ETAM application and the program’s capacity. After completing required courses for entering a major, you’re guaranteed a spot in your first-choice major if you maintain the required automatic entry cumulative GPA defined for your class.

During each ETAM cycle, all College of Engineering majors will accept applications. On the ETAM application, you are required to apply to three majors with the option to select up to five majors. It is important that you thoroughly evaluate your major choices and rankings, as you will not have the option to decline an offer to a major listed on your application.
