The region’s culture for innovation has propelled Houston to an unparalleled position as an international engineering hub, and that is no coincidence. From housing hundreds of engineering firms, including Fortune 500s, to spearheading historic discoveries in the STEM fields, Houston has established itself as an unrivaled location for engineers.
The University of St. Thomas’ engineering programs are set to prepare you for the challenges, demands and rewards the Houston’s engineering ecosystem offers.
UST’s four engineering paths, chemical, electrical, mechanical, and engineering physics, are all designed to build a strong foundation of STEM skills. By teaching through design-oriented programs, students sharpen all critical thinking skills ahead of higher-level courses. All programs also offer hands-on experience through labs and research to better prepare for the real world.
