Memorandum of Understanding and Articulation Agreement
Pertaining to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology
  Texas A&M University
College of Engineering
and
Richland College
of the Dallas County Community College District

The intent of this agreement between Texas A&M University(TAMU) University College of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution Department and Richland College (RLC), of the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), is to increase the number and quality of students matriculating from RLC into electronics engineering technology at TAMU.  Concomitantly, this agreement is designed to foster enhanced transfer processes for RLC students pursuing a bachelor degree in electronics engineering technology.

This agreement recognizes the following terms and conditions:

  1. Representatives from TAMU’s and RLC’s admission’s staff, academic advisors, and engineering faculty will collaborate to select students for the program and will provide advising to students in the program.
  2. TAMU College of Engineering / Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution Department faculty and staff will provide support to engineering faculty at RLC through the sharing of course syllabi and other pertinent ABET-related material.
  3. Students who successfully complete the RLC Associate in Sciences with an Emphasis in Electronics Engineering Technology will be able to transfer a block of 60 credit hours into the TAMU Electronics Engineering Technology degree.  The transfer courses must meet the TAMU College of Engineering required GPA (2.5 in transferable hours) and the minimum grade per course (‘C’ or better) for transferring to the TAMU College of Engineering.  TAMU will accept all courses as outlined in the Richland / TAMU Electronics Engineering Technology Transfer Guide.
  4. RLC students successfully completing the Associate in Sciences with an Emphasis in Electronics Engineering Technology program according to the Richland / TAMU Electronics Engineering Technology Transfer Guide and who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 in transferable hours will gain automatic admission into TAMU’s College of Engineering / Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution Department.  Students maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in transferrable hours will gain preferential review for admission into TAMU’s College of Engineering / Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution Department.  Students with a GPA of 2.5 to 2.99 will be reviewed utilizing the standard transfer procedures at Texas A&M University and will be evaluated based upon traditional review.  All transfer applicants must officially apply to Texas A&M University with an indicated first choice admission into the Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution Department, Electronics Engineering Technology Program Option.
  5. The Richland / TAMU Electronics Engineering Technology Transfer Guide, attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference as Exhibit A, will be reviewed and updated by RLC and TAMU faculty and advisors at least annually in September.  The Office of Transfer Services and University Relations at DCCCD, Dean of Engineering at RLC, and Department Head of the Engineering Technology Department at TAMU will approve changes.
  6. The progress of this program will be monitored by both TAMU and RLC and may be revised by mutual agreement at any time.  Either party may terminate this agreement at any time when the said party believes that termination is in the best interest of all parties concerned.  Those students already participating in the program at the time of termination will have their course work honored.
  7. A copy of the Memorandum of Understanding and Articulation Agreement along with the TAMU - RLC Equivalency Transfer Guide will be kept in the office of Academic Affairs and Transfer Programs at DCCCD, Engineering Department at RLC, and the Office of the Department Head of the Engineering Technology Department at TAMU.
  8. Annually, TAMU and RLC will share data related to the enrollment, scholastic progress, and academic performance of former and active cooperative students in order to evaluate opportunities for improvement and the overall progress of this program.
  9. RLC and TAMU will collaborate on the design of marketing materials, which will be distributed to current students, potential students, or the community at large to publicize this agreement.
  10. The faculty and administrators from TAMU and RLC will meet annually to assess and develop program offerings; to schedule student and faculty class visits; and to explore potential joint grant funding.
