You like structure and logic, cause and effect, putting things together. You built a mean pillow fort as a kid, and no one ever asks you to play Jenga any more because you’re just that good.

The Panama Canal, Lombard Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, the International Space Station… they all had great engineers to dream them up and bring them to life.

Are you ready to make your dreams come true?

The Texarkana College Engineering program will help you build the strong foundation you need to reach your goals.
