SICSA Reception

On Wednesday, November 18, the University of Houston’s Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture (SICSA) hosted an invitation-only reception that brought together leaders in the space and aerospace industries across the Houston region to promote the center, its academic programs, and the success of its students and alumni.

SICSA, which offers the world’s only space architecture master’s program, recently moved into the Cullen College of Engineering. This event reintroduced the revamped space architecture program to leaders in academia, industry and government throughout the community as an interdisciplinary and collaborative academic program that will produce the future leaders in the field.

Attendees enjoyed hors d'oeuvres while touring the SICSA facilities and classrooms, speaking  with SICSA leaders and watching a short documentary video about the center.
