About the Cyber Security Summer Camp
The University of Houston-Clear Lake Cyber Security Institute will host a Cyber Security themed Summer Camp from June 8 to June 10, 2015. The camp’s mission is to expose local high school students to Cyber Security. Cyber Security expertise is in high demand and offers a promising career path. The camp is designed to motivate students to continue their education in related STEM fields.  We leverage the domain expertise and computing facilities at our Cyber Security Institute to develop a well-rounded camp with following goals in mind:
  • Expand the camper’s horizon in the domain of Cyber Security including the technology, organization, and people factors.
  • Educate the campers about ethics in Cyber Security.
  • Inspire the campers with what Cyber Security entails.
  • Introduce the campers to a spectrum of information systems vulnerabilities, security threats, and possible countermeasures.
  • Teach the campers about various technical topics with a focus on network security.
  • Design relevant and interesting hands-on labs for the campers to practice what they learn in a controlled environment.
  • Create opportunities for campers to talk to cyber security professionals in both public and private sectors.
Network Management and Security Training Programs
Are you interested in a career in Information Security or Networking? Have you ever thought of earning industry certifications to further your career? The Network Management and Security certificate is designed for you to achieve those goals.

Cyber Security Collaboration Forum
Dual Degree Program (DDP)
Dual Degree Program (DDP)


In response to today’s global work environment Engineering Management (EMGT) program at the University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL) and Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) in Poland announced that they have agreed to launch a 1+1 Dual Degree Program (DDP) in the fall of 2013. Students may concurrently earn a Master of Science in Engineering Management in UHCL and earn a Master of Science in Management and Production Engineering in WUT.
The purpose of the proposed dual degree program is to:
  • provide students with an opportunity to earn both degrees (USA and European Union) during two years – one year at home institution and another year at hosting institution,
  • provide access to quality education in internationals environment

Participating students are required to successfully complete their first year studies at their home institution and their second year studies including thesis at the hosting institution to be awarded two MS degrees.

The Dual Degree program creates a win-win effect for both institutions. Students in both institutions have an opportunity to obtain two MS degrees with reduced time and cost, and UHCL will benefit from its increased diversity of the student population. For detailed information about this program, please contact Dr. Young Jeong, the program chair of Engineering Management program at UHCL at

Four-year Study Plans and Two-year Course Schedules

The information on this Website provides examples pertaining to a four-year study plan and two-year upper-level course schedule for each degree offered by the School of Science and Computer Engineering. There are many possible substitutions that can be made within a semester. Contact Academic Advisors Dorothy Hogg or Beryl Ricard to develop your personal plan of study.
