College of Science
Accomplished faculty form the foundation of any great program. In the College of Science, our students have the opportunity to interact with some of the best, from outstanding classroom educators to world-renowned research experts.
Our faculty excel at providing unique learning experiences and fundamental science education to students across Texas A&M. As scientists, we innately encourage innovation and discovery — two key components of the intellectual engine that drives our global economy. We also believe in giving back, serving in leadership positions on many committees, boards, and professional groups dedicated to shaping the future of scientific research and teaching as well as related policy and funding.
We’re at the head of our class, and we have it down to a science.
