Coursework

​​​​Students who are accepted into the Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy will enroll in math, science and core curriculum courses at any one of the Dallas College campuses, while also enrolling in Texas A&M engineering courses taught by Texas A&M faculty at the El Centro Campus.

In one or two years, depending on time it takes to complete these early courses, students will transition to Texas A&M to complete their bachelor’s degree in the highly ranked College of Engineering.
