  1. Building the Energy Workforce of Tomorrow Charles Cook, Vice Chancellor for Educational Development November 3, 2005

  2. Question 1: How Big is HCC? Each Semester, HCC enrolls: a. Between 10,000-15,000 students. b. About 20,000 students. c. Almost 40,000 students. d. Over 55,000 students.

  3. Answer: D Each semester, over 55,000 students attend HCC in several programs: • 76 percent of them are enrolled in academic transfer (AA/AS) or workforce credit (certificate/AAS) programs. • 13 percent are enrolled in continuing education courses/programs. • 5 percent are enrolled in Adult Education. • 6 percent are enrolled in Dual Credit courses.

  4. Question 2: Which group represents the largest percentage of HCC students? • Caucasian. • African-American. • Hispanic. • Asian-American. • International.

  5. Diversity of HCCS Enrollment Answer: C Source: 2001 HCCS Fact Book

  6. THE DEMOGRAPHIC TRANSFORMATIONS OF HARRIS COUNTY (1960-2000) Source: U.S. Census (www.census.gov); classifications based on Texas State Data Center conventions; total populations are given in parentheses.

  7. What is the Role of HCC in Preparing the Energy Workforce? • HCC provides the connection between high school and the workforce and/or the university. • Technician Level: HCC offers certificates and AAS degrees that are designed to prepare students with entry-level job skills (some programs/courses are also transferable). • Professional Level: HCC offers AA/AS degrees in core subject areas (math, sciences, pre-engineering) for students to transfer to baccalaureate programs. • Continuing Education: HCC provides access to contracted, on-going education/training.

  8. HCC-High School Connections • Tech-Prep: students can take “articulated” courses in the 9th and 10th grades that will prepare them for further study in a specific job/career path (see sample 6-year plans) • Dual Credit: students with college-level skills (reading, writing, and math) may take courses for both HS and college credit. • Early College High School: HCC hosts HISD charter high school(s) directly on its campuses.

  9. Faculty Development Partnership Program • $2.2 million grant from US Dept of Ed • HCC, HISD, UH-Downtown • 15 workshops in the following topics: mathematics, advances in technology, biology, English composition, the physical sciences, and counseling/advising. • The topics address subject matter, teaching techniques, and curriculum alignment.

  10. Question 3: What energy-specific programs does HCC provide? • Pre-Engineering. • Process Technology. • Chemical Laboratory Technology • Instrumentation. • All of the above. (Answer: E – All of the above)

  11. Sample Curriculum:Process Technology Certificate

  13. HCC-University connections Pre-Engineering at HCC: • Students complete 42 SCH of core curriculum courses at HCC, including Calculus I and II and Physics I and II • Students may complete up to an additional 24 SCH of courses specific to the engineering discipline in which they wish to major

  14. “Closing the Gaps” in Texas Higher Education • Houston and Texas are becoming increasingly diverse – so is HCC. • Income and Economic Vitality are tied to Educational Attainment of Population • 80 percent of today’s jobs, including those in energy, require post-secondary education. • Texas must “close the gaps” in educational attainment for all Texans – the majority of Texas college students are in community colleges.
