UH/HCC Engineering Academy at Katy

The University of Houston (UH) introduced its first Engineering Academy program, in partnership with Houston Community College (HCC), to the Greater Katy area in Fall 2020. 

The UH/HCC Engineering Academy at Katy is unique in that students are co-enrolled at both UH and HCC from the moment they are accepted into the academy, making them official UH Cougars from the beginning of their academic careers.

Students take their core curriculum courses through HCC while taking engineering courses from UH Cullen College of Engineering faculty at the University of Houston at Katy.

After completing all academy requirements, students then transition to the UH main campus to complete their bachelor’s degrees in civil, electrical, computer, industrial or mechanical engineering. Academy requirements are designed to be completed in one or two years.
