Schreiner Signs Articulation Agreement with Texas Tech
          
Signing Schreiner University has enhanced its commitment to engineering students through an articulation agreement with Texas Tech University.

“Schreiner University has a long commitment to preparing students who are interested in pursuing engineering as well as pursuing a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences,” said Dr. Charlie McCormick, Schreiner provost and vice president for academic affairs.

According to McCormick, the articulation agreement with Texas Tech University’s Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering enhances this commitment by providing students a seamless experience in the pursuit of their engineering degree.
     
“As Schreiner students, they will benefit from the close faculty-student interaction, especially in foundational math and science courses, that is available only at an institution such as Schreiner, and they will have a robust exposure to the texts, ideas and habits of mind that the liberal arts and sciences provides,” said McCormick. “Then, as qualified transfer students, they will have assured admission to TTU’s Whitacre College of Engineering where they will complete a rigorous course of study in engineering. For students, it is the best of both worlds: the quality and care of the liberal arts university and the opportunity and resources of a national research university.”

Dr. Meg Huddleston, Schreiner associate professor of mathematics, added that Schreiner students will still have the opportunity to complete a 3-2 program that will enable them to receive a Bachelor of General Studies in applied science from Schreiner at the time they complete their engineering degree.

“In the current job market, students who are both technically competent and well-rounded, such as those with both engineering and liberal arts degrees, are the most highly sought-after candidates,” Huddleston said.
