TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana
officials have announced that the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has
voted to approve the university’s plan to launch a Bachelor of Science in
Mechanical Engineering degree in the fall of 2020. Initial funding for the
expansion of the engineering program was secured through the funding of
A&M-Texarkana’s Better East Texas Initiative (BET) which received $3.6
million from the 86th Texas legislature. The BET initiative
identified several specific educational opportunities needed to better serve
the people and industry of the East Texas region. “Texas
A&M’s announcement to add mechanical engineering programs at the Texarkana
campus demonstrates the forward thinking that resonates in the soul of this region,”
said Rob Sitterley, President & CEO of AR-TX REDI. “Investment in
developing engineering talent is not an optional endeavor, but rather the
single most important aspect of workforce development today. Communities,
like ours, that embrace and foster STEM education and training are the ones
that will grow and thrive well into the future.”

“I
am thrilled to hear TAMUT will be adding mechanical engineering to the
engineering program,” said Ron Collins, President of JCM Industries. “Having
this engineering program in Texarkana is very important for our immediate and
long-term goals. Continue Reading →
