Investigate a Career in Chemical Engineering
Interested in pursuing a degree in engineering, but you’re not sure what to choose or where to start? Sign up for a Pre-Engineering Specialization in Chemical Engineering at University of Houston-Clear Lake. Through this course of study, your engineering education will be immersed in the chemistry and engineering instruction you need to be prepared for a future in chemical engineering. You will also enroll in typical university core curriculum and foundational curriculum courses to give you a well-rounded college experience.
Taking the Next Steps in Your Specialization
After completing the coursework for this two-year program, you may apply for admission
to the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston, transfer to a different
university system, or remain at UHCL. This gives you the power to choose the direction
