New MS-Space Architecture Program

SICSA’s high visibility, excellent reputation and unique educational programs offered through the College attract many out-of-state and international students to the UH. A new MS-Space Architecture program that was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2003 extends graduate study opportunities to people with non-architecture as well as architecture undergraduate degrees. This program was originally tailored for Houston area aerospace professionals from NASA and affiliated companies, but is also attracting others from outside the state and US. Since its recent implementation, the program has produced more than a dozen graduates, and about the same number is currently enrolled.
