Undergraduate Research Day 2014!

This year's Undergraduate Research Day will take place Thursday, October 9th at 4 p.m. in the Rockwell Pavilion at the M.D. Anderson Library at the University of Houston main campus.

Out of the 150 undergraduate researchers showcasing their posters and oral presentations, 20 will be undergraduates from the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

“Dynamic Coil” Should Boost Brain Research

The “dynamic coil” being developed by Cullen College researchers was featured on the Cover of IEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering.

Efforts to learn how and when particular areas of the brain work and work together should get a huge boost thanks to a new device under development at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering.

NASA-Sponsored Student Team Develops Innovative Small Satellite Antenna Designs

Nicole Neveu, leader of the NASA-sponsored senior design team, presents their small satellite antenna design to their faculty advisors and sponsors.

Robert Provence, a NASA aerospace engineer, had a problem.

For over 12 years, Provence has been designing and developing small satellites called “CubeSats” for NASA. In this time, Provence has seen the design of CubeSats improve drastically – with one exception: the antennas for CubeSats have remained more or less the same since the beginning, and these antennas are, as Provence says, a problem.

ECE Professor Steps Into Interim VP Role


Stuart Long, a veteran electrical and computer engineering professor in the Cullen College, has been named the University of Houston’s interim vice chancellor/vice president of research and technology transfer.

Long’s appointment, effective July 6, temporarily fills a vacancy created by Donald Birx who is leaving the post next month to take over as chancellor of Penn State Erie.

Long seventh in college history to receive Esther Farfel Award

Behind most great leaders there is a great mentor. In Stuart Long’s case, there were four.

Each of these educators encouraged Long to dream big, and ultimately influenced his successful career as a professor and researcher at the University of Houston.
