Career Outcomes

What will my career options be after I graduate? This is a question you've likely asked yourself, whether you're currently enrolled at UHCL or haven't applied yet. If you want to know if UHCL alumni excel in the workforce, turn to the companies that hire them. Ask Amtrak, where the CEO is a UHCL graduate. Ask NASA; more than 100 of our alumni are employed by the agency, including 10 astronauts. Our graduates have landed careers at other prestigious companies across all industries as well, including LyondellBasell, UTMB, Memorial Hermann Jacobs, Oceaneering and HCA Healthcare.

All my professors prepared me in the field I was studying, as well as generally holding me to a higher standard … They got me where I am today
