Engineering at ACC
Exciting things are happening in our Engineering program here at ACC. Check out the new video to see what's happening.
Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy at ACC
Start your engineering career with the new co-enrollment program for engineering students at ACC. Students start by taking classes at ACC, then transfer seamlessly into the College of Engineering at Texas A&M.
Students become a part of A&M from day one, and are guaranteed full admission to Texas A&M upon successful completion of the two year program. Applications for the Fall 2017 class will be accepted January through April 2017. For more information visit the Texas A&M - Chevron Engineering Academy at ACC webpage, or contact Dr. David Fonken, dean of math and science, at email@example.com.
Society of Physics Students
The Austin Community College Society of Physics Students is a chapter of a national organization that is designed for students with an interest in physics. They meet several times a month to explore internship opportunities, discuss various physics topics, host guest speakers, plan field trips and experiments, and to enjoy the company of others who love physics.
SPS couples the energy of handfuls of isolated, sometimes small groups of students into a support system of hundreds of similar groups and thousands of affiliated individuals across the globe. SPS members are eligible for awards, internships, research opportunities, grants, and more!
