Industry Partnership Opportunities

Whether you are looking to partner with students or faculty or need other industry-related assistance, the Engineering Program of The Texas A&M University System can help.

Industry can connect to student programs, either as a potential sponsor of student research programs or through various student internships and recruitment programs. The College of Engineering – through its affiliation with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), also connects industry with continuing education and research resources.

Connecting with Students

Engineering Academic and Student Affairs, the academic dean's office for the College of Engineering, handles academic-related business for undergraduate and graduate programs. It also coordinates programs for pre-college and current students.

Connecting with Research

Our faculty members conduct cutting-edge research to solve today's problems. Professors of practice participate in research as advisors, principal investigators for research grants, and act as industry liaisons to identify research topics and research support.

The TEES supports research that strengthens Texas’ economic base through engineering and technology and collaboration with industry. It focuses on seven areas of research, supported by state-of-the-art research facilities and centers.

The Office of Industry Relations at TEES serves as the contact for private companies and industries interested in pursuing research projects. It assists with tasks such as matching needs with faculty experts and developing research projects.
