Rice Engineering in Houston

Rice University's location in the city of Houston helps provide faculty and students with endless opportunities for collaboration outside campus. Houston is the center of the energy industry, the home of the largest medical complex in the world, and NASA’s Johnson Space Center is just down the road.

As the nation’s fourth largest and most culturally diverse city, Houston delivers rich opportunities for Rice faculty and students — research, collaboration, outreach and careers, as well as convenient off-campus excursions. From the Museum District to the Houston Zoo, from the city's five professional sports teams to its vibrant art and food scene, there’s plenty to see and do beyond the Rice campus hedges.
