Mechanical Engineering Technology

The Department of Science & Mathematics encompasses four discipline areas: Aviation Science, Biology, Mathematics, and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Aviation Science

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management at Texas A&M University-Central Texas provides a comprehensive background in aviation studies, management and business to prepare students for airport and diverse general aviation-related roles. The Aviation Science-Professional Pilot Bachelor of Science at Texas A&M University-Central Texas provides students with a well-rounded curriculum that encompasses conceptual foundations in aviation science and management.

Biology

Biology is a multidisciplinary cutting-edge field encompassing the vast diversity of life from the smallest amino acid to ecosystem dynamics.  Our program includes a diversity of courses that are taught by faculty who are dedicated to quality education through scholarship and research.  The breadth of our faculty interests and experiences enable students to specialize their degree in sub-disciplines of biology such as biotechnology, ecology and conservation biology, and organismal biology.

Mathematics

Our mathematics program offers a variety of courses in theoretical and applied mathematics at the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. At the Bachelor’s level, majors may obtain a degree with or without secondary teacher’s certification. At the Master’s level, we are particularly focused on equipping students seeking careers in higher education, operations research, data analytics, and mathematical modeling.

Mechanical Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) at Texas A&M University-Central Texas prepares students for rewarding careers with an engineering focus. The program prepares graduates for practice in product improvement, manufacturing, engineering operation, sales, production, and implementation of mechanical systems. The MET program prepares you to become a skilled engineering technologist who is socially and professionally responsible, equipped with the technical and general communication skills to liaise between engineers, technicians, and the business portions of engineering companies. The MET program engages more hands-on learning while requiring less math and science depth than a traditional engineering degree. This discipline focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering
