Letter From the Dean

Welcome to the College of Science & Engineering at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Your consideration to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) field is a wise choice. Occupations that require a STEM degree or STEM related skills will continue to be in high demand and are projected to make up a significant portion of the U.S. and global economy. Whether your interest is in Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Environmental Science, Computer Information Systems, Mathematics, Physics, Pre-Med, Technology Management, or Wildlife Conservation Science, we have a quality undergraduate program that will meet your educational goals. In addition, we offer Master of Science degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Computational Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Technology Management. I encourage you to explore our department websites, talk to our undergraduate or graduate recruiters, and come visit us so we can assist you in determining which program is right for you. 

The strength of any educational institution is its faculty, and the College of Science & Engineering has some of the best. We boast four Regents Professors, which is a highly selective honor the Texas A&M University System bestows to a small number of professors for their exemplary contributions to their university, community, and the State of Texas. We are committed to excellence in teaching, which is evidenced by our faculty receiving the Texas A&M University System and other teaching awards. If you are interested in expanding your educational experience through hands-on research, both at the undergraduate and graduate level, there are opportunities to work with faculty in fields such as biomedical, regenerative medicine, image processing and recognition, data mining, pavement and soils, alternative energy, catalyst development, high performance computing, skin lesion algorithms, differential geometry spatial algorithms, nuclear astrophysics, surface physics, observational astronomy, or STEM education. 

Thank you for considering Texas A&M University-Commerce and the College of Science & Engineering. The faculty and staff are dedicated to preparing students to achieve their educational and professional goals, whether that is to enter the workforce upon graduation or to continue into a graduate program. 

It's a great day to be a Lion!
