Making the Grade

College life can be overwhelming. Jugling a part-time job, a full-time class load, and finding time for self-care, the life of a student gets pulled in a multitude of different directions. Keeping up can be difficult, especially with challenging subjects like Calculus or Thermodynamics. That's why the Whitacre College of Engineering provides free Tutoring in mathematics, sciences, and freshman and sophomore level engineering courses. In addition, several TTU Academic Stakeholders, student organizations, and academic departments provide tutoring support. At Texas Tech, we take care of our students and provide the support necessary to help you earn the grades that you deserve.

That's why EOC Career Services are here to provide support. Our biannual Engineering Job Fair is your chance to connect directly with companies without leaving Lubbock.
