The Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy offers an accessible, affordable pathway for students to earn a degree from Texas A&M’s highly ranked engineering program.

Students admitted into the Academy are Texas A&M College of Engineering students from day one. You’ll be co-enrolled at Austin Community College and Texas A&M while you take math, science, and core curriculum courses. 

Our smaller student-faculty ratio allows you to connect with your professors and Academy peers. After one or two years co-enrolled at ACC, you’ll transition to Texas A&M University in College Station to finish your bachelor’s degree.
