Happy Birthday, NASA, and Thank You For Everything!

The 55th birthday of our long-time friend, collaborator and supporter, NASA, was a bit sadder than we would have wished for it to be. For all the space enthusiasts out there who rely on the NASA website as a bookmarked cornerstone to your daily list-of-websites-to-visit, you were probably as disappointed as we were to find the following error message when you tried to access the site:

Top Ten Resources for Engineering Students

For new engineering students, balancing the many aspects of college life can be a challenging experience.

Meet Cullen College Alumna Tracy Ngu, Process Engineer at Technip USA

Tracy Ngu graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the UH Cullen College of Engineering in May 2012. She now works as a process engineer at Technip USA here in Houston.

While at the Cullen College, Tracy was an active member of the PROMES (Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies) Program, which offers specialized curricula that emphasizes academic success strategies and personal and professional skills development.

Video: Undergrad Life at the Cullen College of Engineering

We asked a few of our undergrads here at the UH Cullen College of Engineering to film their lives for two weeks so we can show the world an honest, first-hand account of what it is like to be an engineering student at the University of Houston. Using the footage shot by three Cullen College of Engineering students, we produced a video to give our prospective students a closer look into the life of a Cullen College undergrad.

The Engineering Career Search

As the end of the spring semester approaches, members of the class of 2013 are preparing to transition into the full-time workforce. Engineering graduates will apply the technical skills learned in the lectures and labs of the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering at their new jobs.
