Event lets high school seniors experience life as an engineering studentPublished Feb 23, 2020
More than 100 high school seniors from across Qatar learned what life as an engineering student at Texas A&M University at Qatar would be like when the branch campus recently hosted its annual Experience Texas A&M University day.
During the event, Texas A&M at Qatar faculty members talked with prospective students about what it means to be an engineer and gave information about the four bachelor’s degrees the branch campus offers: chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and petroleum engineering.
Current Texas A&M at Qatar students shared their personal experiences with the high school seniors to help prepare them for the challenges of being a college student during which they are expected to become independent learners responsible for their own decisions.
The day concluded with Admissions Time during which the applicants and prospective students had the chance to meet with admissions officers to discuss application files.
The application deadline for freshman admission to Texas A&M at Qatar is 1 March. The Office of Admissions is open Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find out more at http://exploretamuq.com.
