The University of Houston was awarded a $3.29 million grant over five years from the National Science Foundation (NSF)ADVANCE to increase the number and success of women faculty in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
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.
Thanks to seed funding provided by the Cullen College of Engineering, electrical and computer engineering faculty members Ji Chen and David Jackson have launched a research program to develop antennas for small satellites.
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.
Ji Chen, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering with the UH Cullen College of Engineering, has been honored with a 2011 Technical Achievement Award from the Electromagnetic Compatibility Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
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.
A device being developed by a University of Houston professor could boost the cure rate for lung cancer by arming doctors with the ability to more effectively target these cancer cells as a person breathes.
