Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), as of Fall 2008, offers a B.S. degree in Systems Engineering, in addition to a pre-engineering program that allows transfer of students to Texas A&M University and other universities.
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field that enables the realization of complete engineering systems.The TAMIU curriculum prepares students to work in the broad field of Systems Engineering, and provide them with the solid foundations required to continue graduate school in a wide scope of disciplines if they decide to do so. The curriculum includes courses in probability and stochastic modeling, systems optimization and control, systems integration, robotics, engineering economics, and computer programming and simulation. Skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communications, teamwork, and computer programming are emphasized. TAMIU already has several laboratories in place to support the engineering program. These include a Computer Integrated Manufacturing System Lab, a Statics and Dynamics Lab, an Electrical Engineering lab and a CNC Machine Shop, and a Computer Science Lab.
Currently, School of Engineering is offering two miners, the first one is Minor in Petroleum Engineering and the second is Minor in Computer Science.
1- Minor in Petroleum Engineering:
2- Minor in Computer Science:
The Pre-engineering program allows students to complete their first two or three years of core and engineering courses at TAMIU and if they maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average, can be admitted to the engineering program of their choice at Texas A&M University (TAMU). In order to qualify for admission at TAMU, students must complete a total of at least 42 credits from a degree plan, including required courses, maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and meet all other general transfer admission requirements for transfer to TAMU. This opportunity makes it possible for Laredo students to have access to one of the best engineering programs in the world. Furthermore, TAMIU and Texas A&M University Kingsville (TAMUK) entered into an agreement that allows students to transfer to TAMUK with 66-87 SCH for their program of choice. To be able to transfer to TAMUK, the students are expected to select their degree of choice early on because the core is specific to the engineering curriculum.
TAMIU has also entered in an agreement with Laredo Community College (LCC) to facilitate student transfer. The students are allowed to complete 69 SCH at LCC before admission to the B.S. in Systems Engineering Program at TAMIU
