Student From TAMU Departments Outside the College of Engineering
Students requesting transfer admission (change of curriculum) from another TAMU department outside the College will be evaluated only when they have:
1) completed at least one semester of course work at TAMU
2) completed a minimum of 12 SCH of CBK1) courses that include: MATH 151, PHYS 218 and CHEM 107 or equivalents with a grade not less than “C”
3) earned a CBK GPR of 2.75 or better
4) earned a cumulative GPR of 2.75 or better
5) no history of repeating, dropping or withdrawing from courses
6) not made a grade less than “C” in any course in the previous semester
Only the “best” grade is used in computing the CBK GPR. However, in the case of “marginal” students, CBK courses taken at TAMU are viewed more favorably than those taken elsewhere. Students who have repeated a CBK course or courses, regardless of the reason, are not viewed as favorably as those who pass the course(s) on the first attempt. Students who have substantially completed their CBK courses should also have completed a programming course such as CPSC 203 or 206 and a graphics course such as ENDG 105 that can be substituted for ENGR 111 and ENGR 112.
Applicants should also respond to the following questions in writing - be specific.
* Why do you want to change to Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology, rather than another engineering discipline (aerospace, electrical, etc)?
* Which one of the two major areas of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology are you most interested in?
* What are your professional career plans after graduation?
* What strengths do you feel you would bring to the Civil Engineering Department?
1) CBK courses are: ENGR 111, ENGR 112, MATH 151, MATH 152, PHYS 218, PHYS 208, CHEM 107 & ENGL 104.
2) Request for transfer admission is initiated by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org, or setting up an appointment calling 979-845-4951.
3) The Department’s deadlines for submitting a transfer request (extensions may be granted to students with exceptional academic records).
Fall Admission: May 15th to August 1st
Spring Admission: September 15th to December 15th
Summer Admission: February 15th to May 1st
4) Transfer requests will be evaluated after final grades for the current semester have been posted on SIMS.
5) The Department reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant who has been assigned a sanction due to academic misconduct.
6) Students who are accepted are generally placed on “Provisional” status for a minimum of one semester. Provisional students must meet a set of requirements to remain in the Department. These requirements, as defined by the Department, may include but are not limited to:
7) The provisions of this policy do not constitute a contract, express or implied, between any applicant, student, faculty or staff member of the Department of Engineering Technology & Industrial Distribution or Texas A&M University. This policy is for informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as a guarantee of admission if all provisions are met. The Department reserves the right to change or alter any statement herein without prior notice.
One of the most significant life-affecting decisions you make will be your college choice. But why should you choose Texas A&M’s Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology Program?
Be the best. We offer a top notch and flexible degree. We have the finest faculty to educate students in both manufacturing and mechanical fields. Our laboratory facilities offer you the opportunity to be involved in hands-on experiences that will prepare you well for any industry that hires you.
You’re involved. Texas A&M is home to over 800 recognized student organizations in areas such as politics, engineering, visual arts, community service, and sports. Organizations specific to our students are AWS, American Welding Society, SME, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, ASME-TEC, American Society of Mechanical Engineers-Technology, and Tau Alpha Pi, our Honors Student Society.
Our graduates are already doing it. Look at many of the large manufacturing and oil field companies around and you’ll find people there who graduated from our program. CAMERON? BOEING? EXXON? You bet. But that’s not all.
You’ll also find our grads making contributions in energy, electronics, computer and software companies, and even in some research fields. These folks can tell you how a solid background in manufacturing processes, mechanics, and materials can get you ready to jump into any field.
It’s not all classrooms and laboratories. If you’d like a sneak peek at what real manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology is like, we can help you do that, too. Many Texas A&M MMET students participate every year in internship programs that offer them design and production opportunities in major companies. Our own faculty also hire students every year to work on their many research projects.
Make the call. Whatever your goals, the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology Program can help them get a jump start. Call our undergraduate advising office at 979-845-4351. You can also e-mail email@example.com, to schedule a visit. If you are interested in visiting with Admissions, visiting the dorms, etc., contact the Visitor’s Center at 979-845-5851, and let them know what areas you would like to visit!
