The Texas A&M University-Kingsville Rio Grande Valley Engineering Initiative continues to expand its educational and research offerings this summer and fall. 

Currently, the initiative provides junior and senior-level classes in chemical, environmental and natural gas engineering. 

Starting this summer, the initiative will move beyond undergraduate courses to offer master’s-level classes in industrial management. In the fall, the initiative will offer master’s-level civil and environmental engineering classes, expand bachelor’s-level courses to architectural engineering and industrial management and technology, and offer a Ph.D. in Sustainable Energy Systems. 

The initiative makes it possible for engineering students in the Rio Grande Valley to earn a Texas A&M-Kingsville degree. The goal of the initiative is to accommodate students who receive their first two years of instruction from Rio Grande Valley community colleges, and allow them to transfer to A&M-Kingsville for their third and fourth years of college. 

Initiative courses are taught at South Texas College Mid Valley Campus in Weslaco, the University Center, on the Texas State Technical College campus in Harlingen, and at Texas A&M University-Kingsville Citrus Center in Weslaco.
