Pre-Engineering Agreement with Texas Tech University
Although Angelo State University doesn’t offer an engineering program, cadets majoring in Physics can take advantage of a Pre-Engineering Agreement with Texas Tech University’s main campus in Lubbock, TX. The agreement allows cadets to transfer to several undergraduate programs in Texas Tech University’s College of Engineering. As a result, those cadets will complete the Air Force ROTC curriculum at Detachment 820, Texas Tech University.
