The RELLIS Campus, currently known as the Texas A&M Riverside Campus, is located adjacent to State Highway 47 and Highway 21.
The new campus will allow students to transfer seamlessly to leading universities throughout The Texas A&M System located at the RELLIS Campus. The site also creates opportunities for Blinn to partner with other organizations and institutions located on the RELLIS Campus, including high-end, innovative, private research and development companies, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX).
The campus initially will include a cluster of seven new buildings and test beds to allow the private sector to develop secure research facilities adjacent to the System’s site. The focus will include robotics, driverless and connected vehicles, advanced manufacturing, large-scale testing, as well as smart power grids and water systems. An education center will offer four-year degrees to students not admitted to Texas A&M University through affiliations with other universities in The Texas A&M System.
The Blinn College academic facility at the RELLIS Campus will host its grand opening ceremony at 10 a.m. on August 23, 2018, and will be open for the Fall 2018 semester.
The RELLIS Campus is named for the Texas Aggies’ core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity, and selfless service.
