Victoria College Introduces New Engineering Degree Program

Thanks to a very unique dual enrollment program, an unmet need in Victoria's higher education offerings is getting fufilled.

 

 

Victoria College president Dr. Jennifer Kent discussed the new engineering program partnership between VC and Texas A&M- Kingsville Tuesday at the Economic Development Partnership meeting. Kent says students will be able to obtain a bachelors degree in engineering, by taking courses at Victoria College for the first two years and then transferring to A&M-Kingsville for the last two years. Kent says a program like this has been requested for quite a while.

“Since coming to Victoria last summer, I’ve heard repeatedly that we have a need for engineers in our community. We talked about partnerships and we thought what can we do to grow our own engineers. So now through a partnership with A&M Kingsville, we are now very excited to bring this new engineering Academy to Victoria College, in order to serve the students in this service area,” said Kent.

Kent says that anyone interested in the engineering program needs to make an appointment with an advisor at Victoria College, then the enrollment process will begin from there. The engineering program begins in the fall semester of this year. For more information, visit: http://www.victoriacollege.edu
