BROWNSVILLE - “Howdy” was the word used at the Texas Southmost College Arts Center (TSC) as officials announced the partnership between TSC and Texas A&M University for the Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy.
University officials said the co-enrollment partnership was developed to address the state’s growing need for 43,000 engineers by 2020.
Kathy Banks, dean of the Texas A&M’s college of engineering, said the university has a 25 by 25 initiative to bring 25,000 students by 2025.
According to Kathy Banks, students in the new program will need to apply to the program at TSC and at Texas A&M, and then take math, science, liberal arts classes at TSC while taking freshmen and sophomore engineering courses offered by Texas A&M at the TSC campus.
