University of Houston-Victoria

STEM Building

The new three-story Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Building for the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) provides space for a 120-seat classroom; computer software and study rooms; motion capture, robotics and gaming labs; a computer software server room; a lab with an immersive 210-degree visual screen; labs for biology, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, and biochemistry for students pursuing health careers; rooms for cellular and molecular biology, plant biology, and ecology research; rooms for microscopy and sterilization; science labs, including organic chemistry, general chemistry, and physics; a research room for biology; a chemistry prep room; and several offices, workrooms, and study rooms.

The layout of the UHV’s new STEM Building was designed to feature collaborative study and work areas, and state-of-the-art equipment for students and faculty. The STEM labs will provide students with advanced tools to learn about anatomy, physiology, biology, and biochemistry, most of which are required areas of study for careers in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other health-related professions.

This new STEM building will vastly improve our ability to offer additional science programs and allow our students ready employment in the Coastal Bend (of Texas). We are fortunate to have strong industries in this region with a need for scientists and engineers. We want to provide these exceptional companies with the employees they need, which also will help ensure the prosperity of our region for years to come.
