About Texas A&M Engineering
Engineering has been part of Texas A&M University since the university opened in 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. Today, the College of Engineering is the largest college on the College Station campus.
Our college is consistently ranked among the nation's top public programs. We also rank among the top universities in the number of National Merit Scholars, nationally recognized faculty and funded research.
Our students, faculty and alumni are making a difference worldwide through innovation and service. Technologies developed through our research programs are shaping our world, and our education extends far beyond the classroom, engaging industry partners and practitioners to create real-world opportunities for our students.
The Texas A&M University College of Engineering is one of the largest engineering schools in the country, ranking second in undergraduate enrollment and eighth in graduate enrollment by the American Society for Engineering Education in its 2017 survey.
Texas A&M has more than 650 faculty members, several of whom are National Academy of Engineering members, and fellows of their respective professional societies. They are also e...ditors of their respective flagship journals and are recognized at national and international levels for their contributions.
We have also invested in our up-and-coming young faculty. Since 2004, 100 have received prestigious Young Investigator Awards (NSF, CAREER, Air Force, Navy, DARPA and PECASE). These awards support junior faculty by simulating the discovery process in which the excitement of research is enhanced by inspired teaching and enthusiastic learning.
Our researchers have established preeminence in the areas of energy, homeland and national security, engineering the ultra-small and space exploration. Underlying technologies that propelled the college to the forefront of the above research areas include mathematical modeling and simulation, optimization, mechanics, sensors, structures, robotics, autonomous vehicles, communications and networks, process engineering, materials, and computational sciences.
Having established national and international reputations in these areas, our researchers have expanded into the areas of sustainable advanced energy systems; national security; health care; infrastructure and transportation; and informatics and knowledge economy.
The quality of our research activities is highlighted by the direct impact of our research on technology; volume of peer-reviewed research funding from highly competitive sources; volume of publications in high impact refereed journals; number of patents; volume of widely used textbooks; and national rankings of our programs.
