Study in the Rio Grande Valley

Students at the Higher Education Center at McAllen have a unique opportunity to earn an engineering degree from Texas A&M University while living in a thriving, close-knit community in the Rio Grande Valley. This remote learning center was established to prepare students to work in local industries and beyond. Students who begin their studies in McAllen have the option to stay and earn their four-year Texas A&M Engineering degree in McAllen for a certain number of B.S. degree programs, or they can transition to our Galveston or College Station campuses through the Entry to a Major (ETAM) process.
