| For an engineering major, The University of Houston is THE IDEAL place because it attracts many major companies for co-ops, internships and permanent employment. This is because most of the major energy-industry-related, Aerospace, Medical, Oil&Gas companies run operations from Houston. EVERYONE I know in my major (ME), as a student, already has been offered, multiple times, internships, co-ops, or permanent employment after graduation in their field from the following companies: Halliburton, KBR, GE, Shell, Exxon-Mobil, BP, Dupont, Weatherford, Panhandle Energy, Williams Energy, Valero, NASA, Lockheed Martin, United Space Alliance, Continental Airlines, misc. Engineering firms, and the list goes on. |

| I am a Freshman Out-of-state Student at the University of Houston. The reason I choose the University of Houston was because I wanted to attend a school away from home, but a school that I could CALL HOME. After researching several schools, with only an ACT of 21 (most Divsion 1 schools look for an ACT of 22), writing a letter to the school as to why I should be in their busines program, I then was accepted into the University of Houston. |
I was not comfortable enough with being accepted, I HAD to visit the school before making my final decision.
After visiting University of Houston during their Student Orientation and seeing the enviroment of the school, I realized that this was the school for me. Everyone seemed to be very knowledgable and helpful.
Positives: Environment, Appearance, Safety
Negatives: Cost(Out-of-state students pay roughly $20,000/yr - Tuition, fees, room/board, books, etc)I now live in the Moody Towers on campus and I enjoy taking advantage of all the University has to offer.
