UT Tyler Engineering
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 the UT Tyler Houston Engineering Center (HEC), which is located on the HCC Alief-Hayes Campus.
This unique program allows 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
The UT Tyler-HCC partnership is part of a statewide model ASES degree program established in Texas, made available at participating community colleges and supported by participating universities. Students will complete their first two years at HCC, earning an Associate of Science in Engineering Science (ASES).
