Texas A&M-Concho Engineering Academy
The Texas Workforce Commission expects, "25% growth in Engineering jobs statewide in the next decade."
The Texas A&M - Concho Engineering Academy @ MC is unlike traditional transfer programs. Students admitted into the Engineering Academy are Texas A&M College of Engineering students from day one!
Students are co-enrolled at Midland College and Texas A&M. While taking math, science, and core curriculum courses at MC, engineering academy students are enrolled and taking engineering courses from Texas A&M faculty on the MC campus.
Students can spend a minimum of one year or a maximum of two years co-enrolled at
Midland College before transitioning full time to Texas A&M University in College
Station to finish their bachelor's degree.
- Smaller student-faculty ratios in math and science courses, which build the foundation in engineering.
- Substantial financial savings!
Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program are charged tuition and fees by the institution through which each course is registered. Texas A&M coursework is registered in absentia which allows for a reduction in fees for services not used by students enrolled in a course conducted away from the Texas A&M campus in College Station.
- Automatic admission to the first choice engineering major at the end of the second semester for engineering
students who earn a minimum 3.5 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at both Midland
College and Texas A&M and who complete the required coursework.
- Participation in all student services, student activities, student organizations, etc., and to the fullest extent possible at both institutions.
