Texas Engineering Schools to Consider

Baylor University is a great example of an engineering school in Texas. At Baylor University, there is a computer science and an engineering department. They provide bachelor’s degrees in engineering, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, and bioinformatics, as well as master’s degrees in computer science, engineering, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, and biomedical engineering.

Baylor University ranks top 50 (#36 overall) among all undergraduate engineering programs according to FindEngineeringSchools.org.

Texas Tech University also offers many engineering program options, offering programs in engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, construction engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, environmental engineering, and software engineering.

As far as degrees go, in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering, Texas Tech University offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctor’s degrees in each one. In computer engineering, engineering, construction engineering and engineering technology, they offer a bachelor’s degree option. With software engineering, the only option is a master’s degree.

Online Engineering Degree Options at Texas Universities

The University of Texas at Arlington allows students to pursue engineering degree options online.

The specific programs they provide online are aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, industrial engineering, and mechanical engineering in master’s degree. Another online engineering option in Texas is the University of Texas at Tyler. The University of Texas at Tyler offers mechanical engineering as a bachelor’s degree option.
