    Take your math, science, and core curriculum courses at any TCC campus.

    Plus, take an engineering course taught by Texas A&M faculty each semester at the TCC South campus.

  2. Finish at the Texas A&M Campus

    Transition as a full-time student to Texas A&M University after 1 to 2 years at TCC.

    Finish your engineering degree in College Station, Texas.
