Blinn College students are invited to enroll in a summer robotics course hosted by Texas A&M University.

Digital Fundamentals—ENGT 1407 at Blinn and ENTC 219 at Texas A&M—will be taught on the Texas A&M campus during the second summer session and is open to students from both institutions.

Students will design, develop, test, calibrate, optimize and ultimately deliver an autonomous robot. During the design process, students learn digital electronics, mechanical skills, algorithm development and electronic circuitry. At the end of the course, students will work in two-person teams and participate in a robot “race of champions.”

“This course gives students a look at what engineering is all about,” said Dr. Joe Morgan, a Texas A&M engineering professor who will teach the course. “The course will give Blinn students credit if they transfer to Texas A&M or any other university. What we hope is to bring students in to engineering who might not have chosen it to begin with.”

To enroll, students must have completed Math 1314. Prior knowledge and experience in engineering is not necessary.

Blinn enrolled 18,413 students this Fall and has experienced 31.1 percent growth since 2006. Founded in 1883, the College’s tuition and fees average about one-third the cost of the same classes at most four-year public universities in the state. In addition to its campuses in Brenham, Bryan, Schulenburg and Sealy, Blinn teaches online courses, dual credit for high school and prepares students for quick employment through its career and technical certification programs.

Registration is now available for Blinn’s Summer I, Summer II and Fall semesters. For enrollment information and to learn about financial aid opportunities, visit: www.blinn.edu.
