Get a head start on your Texas A&M engineering degree by applying for the Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy at Austin Community College. Offered in partnership with Texas A&M University’s College of Engineering, this unique program offers students an opportunity to pursue an engineering degree while co-enrolled at Texas A&M and ACC.
The Texas Workforce Commission projects a 25 percent growth in engineering jobs statewide in the next decade. According to the Austin Chamber of Commerce, demand for engineers in Central Texas is expected to reach 4,840 by 2022. In response to this anticipated growth, Texas A&M and ACC created the Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy at ACC. Supported by Chevron, the Academy provides talented students an opportunity to pursue their engineering degree in a co-enrollment program between Texas A&M and ACC.
Students who join the fall 2019 cohort will be required to complete their math, science and engineering courses in special designated Engineering Academy class sections at the Austin Community College Highland campus. Below is an example of the semester schedules.
In parallel, students will complete the other general education requirements of the ACC Associate of Science – Engineering degree.
The Engineering Academy is for all ACC students who have achieved a high school diploma or equivalent and are pre-calculus or calculus ready as determined by ACC.
To pre-qualify with ACC as Precalculus or Calculus-ready:
Please note: TAMU requires us to pre-qualify you based on your current transcript or test scores. ALEKS PPL test scores or course credit completed after the TAMU application deadline cannot be used to pre-qualify you to apply for admission to the Fall 2019 Academy.
Requests to be pre-qualified as Precalculus or Calculus-ready are currently being accepted. Texas A&M will accept applications from candidates who are math-level pre-qualified from January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019.
To receive financial aid students must:
ACC notifies students via email once financial aid is awarded or if additional documents are required
"I’ve known since sophomore year of high school that I wanted to study engineering. ACC was the best option financially. I’m very interested in renewable energy. I guess I want to save the world."
