About the Process

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 also allowing you to explore all 22 degree options. After completing the specific coursework required for Entry to a Major (ETAM), which can be as early as your second semester in the college, you’ll let us know which majors you are interested in.  

The ETAM process allows you to take ownership of your future and achieve your academic and career goals. Remember that your academic advisors are here to guide you, answer your questions and help you make an informed decision.

How it Works

ETAM uses a priority method that places you in the highest rank major possible based on your academic performance, content in your ETAM application, and the program’s capacity. After completing required courses for entry to 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.
