Engineering

The TAMS Engineering curricula allow students to pursue a variety of academic fields. Each pathway contains detailed information about its curriculum, including course descriptions, and each pathway can become a “2+2” degree program for TAMS student who remain at the University of North Texas to earn a baccalaureate degree.

Required Courses for Graduation with the TAMS Diploma
(Engineering Track)

Construction Engineering Technology

The Construction Engineering Technology pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in construction engineering to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.  Students who complete Calculus II or higher the second semester of their first year are not required to enroll in mathematics courses during the second year.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

Students who decide to pursue a degree in construction engineering technology at UNT can apply for the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship during the second year of TAMS.  Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher in TAMS/UNT, and recipients of the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship receive $20,000 per year for up to three years or until a student receives a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first.  TAMS students who remain at UNT are also eligible for many other scholarships, including the National Merit winner scholarship and a variety of college and departmental scholarships.  Thus, a TAMS student who remains at UNT to complete a baccalaureate degree could graduate from UNT within two years with little or no debt.

Mechanical and Energy Engineering

The Mechanical and Energy Engineering pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in mechanical and/or energy engineering to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

Bachelor of Science Biomedical Degree

 

The Biomedical Engineering pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in biomedical engineering to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree. TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution. Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester. This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process. Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum. Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester. Students who decide to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering at UNT can apply for the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship during the second year of TAMS. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher in TAMS/UNT, and recipients of the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship receive $20,000 per year for up to three years or until a student receives a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first. TAMS students who remain at UNT are also eligible for many other scholarships, including the National Merit winner scholarship and a variety of college and departmental scholarships.
