Counselors Visit TAMUK to Learn About Available Programs

Posted: Updated:
KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -

More than 40 guidance counselors from around the Coastal Bend were invited to the campus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville for a lesson they can take back to their students.

The counselors were on the campus Wednesday for a tour, and to learn about all the different programs, specifically the engineering department. The counselors actually got to take part in some experiments in the electrical, chemical and environmental engineering labs.

All of this is valuable information they can pass along to their students.

"Having these types of session gives us a chance to go back to the school and when a student asks, now I can tell them this is what it's going to be," said Roxanne Aguierre of the Taft Independent School District. "This is what it entitles. This is how you can use this degree for your future. These are the programs there are. This is a great way to get hands-on experience of the program itself."

"And that is our goal today, is to give them a better sense of what it is to be an engineer and what it takes, and the curriculum and a little bit of lab experience to give them a better flavor of what engineering is," said Dr. Stephan Nix, professor and dean of TAMUK's College of Engineering.

Later, the counselors met with all of the various academic deans to get a better understanding of what each department has to offer.
