University of Houston/HCC Engineering Partnership

Take the first two years of courses at HCC and then transfer to the University of Houston to complete your engineering degree. Students planning to pursue their engineering degree at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering can complete the first two years of their four-year engineering degree at Houston Community College. The HCC Associate of Science in Engineering Science (ASES) degree can be tailored to maximize the number of courses transferable into the Civil, Environmental, Electrical, Computer, Chemical, Biomolecular, Mechanical, and Petroleum Engineering degree programs at the University of Houston. By so doing, students can cut the cost of their engineering degree in half. Every year, more than 100 HCC students transfer into the U of H Engineering program.

With the opening of the new University of Houston campus in Katy in Fall 2019, students will be able to take the first two years of their engineering courses at the HCC Katy campus and then complete their four-year engineering degree on the new U of H Katy campus in the fields of Computer Engineering, Construction Engineering, or Systems Engineering.
