<p>As state universities, UT-A and TAMU likely accept significant numbers of transfer students from community colleges.</p>
<p>Generally, if you transfer to a university as a junior, you will need four semesters of normal course load to complete a bachelor's degree. However, with some majors (often including engineering majors), some of the freshman and sophomore level courses are not available in your local community college, so you may have to use some of your schedule taking "catch up" courses (usually sophomore level engineering courses like electronics, materials, statics, computer science, etc.; freshman and sophomore level math and physics for engineering students are generally widely available). This may require you to take an extra summer session or extra semester, or take greater than normal course loads to finish in four semesters.</p>
<p>What you likely want to do at community college is:
* Complete all of the math (typically four semesters' worth including a year of freshman calculus, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations) and physics (for engineering majors, usually three or four semesters' worth) available.
* Complete the needed amount of chemistry and/or biology courses for your major (if any are needed).
* Complete any available transferable engineering type courses applicable to your major (electronics, statics, materials, computer science).
* Complete as many as possible of the English composition, humanities, and social studies breadth courses required for your engineering degree.
* Complete any other needed course for your engineering degree, if available at the community college.</p>
