The Division of Health Sciences and Professional Education at Del Mar College signed an agreement with the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville that forges a clear path to earning a bachelor’s degree in engineering. 

The agreement, known as an Articulation Agreement, is designed to facilitate the transfer of students from the engineering programs at Del Mar College to the Texas A&M-Kingsville Bachelor of Science programs in Architectural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Natural Gas Engineering. 

Signers of the Articulation Agreement were Dr. Mark Escamilla, President of Del Mar College; Dr. Steven Tallant, President of Texas A&M University-Kingsville; Dr. Heidi Anderson, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M University-Kingsville; Dr. David Arreguin, Interim Dean for Health Sciences and Professional Education at Del Mar College; and Dr. Stephan Nix, Dean of the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. 

“This new articulation agreement between Del Mar College and Texas A&M University-Kingsville opens multiple opportunities within the engineering discipline for our students,” said Dr. David Arreguin, interim dean of the College’s Division of Health Sciences and Professional Education. “Students will have access to a variety of career pathways in engineering.” 

He added, “We’re building a bridge that connects students’ initial core curriculum completion and engineering studies at the College for their Associate in Science Degree to any of the University’s Bachelor of Science Degrees in engineering.” 

Dr. Stephan J. Nix, dean of the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering, said, “Del Mar College has been a wonderful partner with the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville for many, many years and has provided us with many high quality students.”  

“This agreement will continue to ensure that these students get accurate advising and solid guidance so they can graduate and contribute to the economy of South Texas in the shortest time possible.”
