The University of Houston System offers bachelor’s- and master’s- level degree programs in Katy for students interested in pursuing studies in engineering, business, education and other high-demand fields. The classes are offered by the University of Houston (UH) and the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV).
UH offers classes at the Houston Community College (HCC) Northwest-Katy Campus at 1550 Foxlake Drive. UHV offers face-to-face classes at a leased facility at 2002 W. Grand Parkway N., Building 2. The arrangement allows UH and UHV to continue serving the higher education needs of the region while a new UH System campus is built near I-10 and the Grand Parkway. The new campus is expected to open in 2019.
UH offers graduate courses in petroleum and subsea engineering, both in high demand along the West Houston Energy Corridor. UHV offers both bachelor’s degrees for transfer students and master’s degrees in business, education and computer science, along with programs in a number of other disciplines. Additional programs are offered online.
