Offered at Richland College in conjunction with Texas A&M University (College Station)

Degree Code: AS.TAMU.ELEC.ENGR.11

This is an "Articulated" degree with Texas A&M University (TAMU) - College Station.

Students who complete this degree with a GPA of 2.50 with no grade below that of "C" and who meet all admissions requirements at Texas A&M University (TAMU - College Station) are eligible to apply for admission to TAMU's Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology program. Students 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. Students should follow this plan only if they wish to transfer to TAMU in Electronics Engineering Technology. Students wishing to transfer to another university should not assume this entire plan will transfer.

In order to be eligible to receive this AS degree in Electronics Engineering Technology, a student must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 60 credit hours indicated in this degree plan;
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1301 and the selected college-level mathematics course;
  3. Receive a GPA of at least 2.00 ("C")
    [NOTE: TAMU guarantees admission with a 2.50 GPA with no grade below a "C"]
    ;
  4. Give permission to DCCCD and TAMU-College Station to share transcript data in order to evaluate degree program progress and assist in degree completion requirements and reporting;
