On behalf of the College, I extend a hearty welcome to all new and returning Technology students. Whether you are just starting in your career or working to advance in your current profession, you have made the right choice. With genuine UH pride, I am pleased to share that our College continues to set enrollment growth records at about 4,800 students, nearly 20 percent more than last fall.

The College offers unmatched opportunities for creativity and innovation with a diversity of projects that touch myriad aspects of our everyday lives. Our students enthusiastically enrich their academic experiences at UH and in the College of Technology in innovative ways - from volunteering to build a playhouse for neglected children, to designing the future’s fuel-efficient cars, and inventing new methods for eliminating environmental waste. Students are encouraged to form new professional relationships through events like the Halliburton Petroleum Industry Lectures Series, the fall and spring career fairs, and the semiannual Merchandising Star Awards.

Please take a moment to read the top stories on our new website and learn about the achievements and contributions of our students and alumni. You are invited to become acquainted with our talented faculty - exceptional teachers, technologists, and researchers who have the real-world connections to the business and industry communities.

On behalf of our faculty and staff here, we are looking forward to another successful year, and anticipate that we will continue to experience increasing involvement with our alumni and friends. We will keep you updated on our growth and progress - and how to take part.

With warm regards,
Dr. William E. Fitzgibbon, III, Dean
