Welcome to The J. Mike Walker '66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University!

The objective of the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Ambassadors is to provide a peer-to-peer perspective to prospective and current graduate students. Our ambassadors have a diverse background of experience, both professionally and personally, allowing them to offer counsel and advice from a unique perspective. Ambassadors are available to answer questions regarding life at Texas A&M, class and scheduling advice, research groups/areas, internships, working in industry or academia, student organizations and resources available to graduate students.
