What is Ingenium?

The word engineer is derived from the Latin words ingeniare (“to contrive, devise”) and ingenium (“cleverness”). As students and engineers – we want to give you a space to be yourselves, share your experiences and learn from one another. We hope that this blog inspires you and provides a window into all the opportunities and resources that are available to you as a Texas A&M Engineering student.
