Pre-Engineering Program

By enrolling in a pre-engineering program at UHCL, student will have the opportunity to explore five different engineering degree paths at an affordable cost. It's a great way to test the waters of an engineering degree, before fully committing to the major. Throughout the program, students will be immersed in the physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science instruction they need to be prepared for a future in engineering. While in Pre-Engineering, students will also enroll in typical university core curriculum and foundational curriculum courses. After completing the coursework, student may apply for admission to the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering upon satisfaction of UH transfer admission standards. These students may also retain the option to stay at UHCL, and obtain an Engineering degree from UHCL or transfer to any other university in the country.

However, because engineering may be an extremely challenging course of study to some students, these students may determine that it is not an appropriate choice. Therefore, advisors will assist these students in finding a course of study that is best suited to their unique talents and interests. The ultimate priority is for every student to graduate successfully from a best-fit major.

Why Should You Attend?

If you are an executive, decision-maker, manager, leader, IT professional – this workshop is for you.
If your organization has information to protect – this workshop is for you.

Cybersecurity frameworks abound and are quite comprehensive; however, there has been no simplified reference describing the essential components of a modern information security program. Program leaders are often forced to blaze our own unique trail in the pursuit of stronger security and better protection of our organization’s information resources.

Building a security program that will evolve and adapt is essential. 

These talks will examine how to build a modern information security architecture and program that will both evolve and adapt to the rapidly changing cyber threat.

Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP)

The Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP) is an academic program designed for undergraduate students interested in pursuing degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. H-LSAMP is an alliance comprised of top area institutions, including: Texas Southern University, University of Houston, Houston Community College, San Jacinto College, University of Houston-Downtown, and most recently, University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, H-LSAMP was created to significantly increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees in STEM fields each year. As a nondiscriminatory organization, H-LSAMP accepts all qualified individuals as resources allow.

If you want to develop skills and experience that will position you for life-long success, become an H-LSAMP scholar. Apply today!
