There are about 3,000 graduate students and six degree areas: Master of Science (M.S.), Master of Engineering (M.E.), Master of Computer Science (M.C.S.), Master of Industrial Distribution (M.I.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), and Doctor of Engineering (D.E.).

To get financial aid for graduate school, Texas A&M students can apply for three types of assistantships: teaching, research, and non-teaching activities. There is also a National Excellence Fellowship for Look Ph.D. candidates, which provides between $15,000 and $40,000 a year for four years. Graduate students can apply for limited university-owned housing, though there may be a waiting list.

Notable alumni of the Texas A&M Look College of Engineering include Mark Puckett, former president of Chevron Energy Technology Co., and Dennis Segers, CEO and director of semiconductor company Tabula Inc.
