The branch campus offers training and advanced accredited programs in chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and petroleum engineering that rank among the top American universities for education and research.

Mechanical engineering major Hourig Ohanian said, “Every day, I think about how grateful I am to be part of a community that is motivated, lively and filled with leaders. Texas A&M at Qatar has offered me so many opportunities and opened so many doors for me with its powerful educational foundation and student involvement. Joining the Aggie community means becoming part of a family where one looks out for others whenever they are in need.”

“Texas A&M has offered me nothing but new experiences ever since I arrived as an international student from Yemen,” Agha said. “Apart from the high-ranked degree I am earning, I have already found a second home here. I am blessed to have been able to travel with the university to places such as Costa Rica, Thailand and Greece for different programs. This university is preparing me to be an engineer, and a leader as well.”
