Engineering the Future

Houston Community College and the University of Texas at Tyler have partnered to create an innovative, four-year Engineering Degree program at HCC's Alief-Hayes Campus.

The new program will allow students to obtain a UT Tyler Engineering BS degree in the normal four-year time period while saving nearly 50 percent in their tuition costs.

While beneficial for the student, the program is also designed to support the engineering field and the businesses which need to fill highly skilled job opportunities.

HCC Associate of Science in Engineering Science

Students will complete their first two years at HCC, earning an Associate of Science in Engineering Science (ASES).

UT Tyler Engineering Bachelor of Science Degree

Students who complete the prescribed ASES curriculum with an overall GPA of at least 2.5 and no grade lower than C are automatically admitted to the UT Tyler baccalaureate degree program. No further testing or evaluation is required.
