In 2013, Texas A&M University (TAMU) was designated as an Esri Development Center (EDC).
Only a handful of academic institutions worldwide have this distinction.
Membership in this program provides TAMU Students, Faculty, and Staff with access to special Esri software, data, and support resources
as well as other opportunities for the TAMU community to learn and apply development techniques with the latest, greatest Esri
software and data.
EDC Benefits Available to Texas A&M University
The EDC program provides several benefits to the TAMU community. Among others, these include:
EDC Student of the Year
The TAMU EDC will select an Esri Development Center Student of the Year, an honor bestowed upon a TAMU student
who has made the largest contribution to GIS development over the previous year. This student
will receive an award of $500 and a nomination for the ESRI Student of the Year competition
which could result in an additional $2,000 award plus sponsorship to attend the Esri User Conference in San Diego.
