The stature of the Cullen College of Engineering has increased again, as it improved by its ranking by one in the latest edition of U.S. News & World Report, up to the No. 66 rated graduate engineering program in the country.
Cullen College of Engineering professor Jeffrey Rimer, Ph.D., has been selected as the newest Associate Editor for Crystal Growth & Design, a monthly peer-reviewed journal published by the American Chemical Society.
Her work as an undergraduate computational researcher, as well as a strong support system inside and outside of the University of Houston system, have allowed senior Rosa Miraldina Futy to excel in her studies, which includes being selected for an American Chemical Society Bridge Career & Professional Development Award.
A mutation that replaces a single amino acid in a potent tumor-suppressing protein turns it from saint to sinister. A new study by a coalition of Texas institutions shows why that is more damaging than previously known.
Six students from the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston have been honored by the Great Minds in STEM organization as 2020 scholars, and been rewarded with scholarships.
For more than 30 years, GMiS has served as an educational and national 501(c)3 nonprofit, whose vision is to be a national leader in keeping America technologically strong by promoting science, technology, engineering and math careers, especially in underserved communities.
A Cullen College of Engineering professor will be furthering his research into developing small, modular reactor systems and tuning the properties of catalysts after receiving a pair of grants expected to total more than $2 million in funding.
The American Society of Indian Engineers and Architects (ASIE) has awarded five scholarships for 2020 to students attending the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering. Each student received a monetary award, ranging from $1,000 to $2,000, to further their studies.
As part of the University of Houston’s virtual university-wide commencement ceremony tonight, the prestigious President’s Medallion will be awarded posthumously to the late William A. Brookshire.
The medallion is awarded at the sole discretion of UH President Renu Khator to deserving individuals or organizations. In addition to Brookshire, the John M. Quinn Foundation – whose namesake was a well-known attorney and philanthropist who died in 2009 – will also be awarded a medallion.
Longstanding skepticism among Texans toward the climate movement has shifted, and attitudes in the nation’s leading energy-producing state now mirror those in the rest of the United States.
About 80 percent of Americans – almost 81 percent of Texans – say they believe climate change is happening, according to new research by UH Energy and the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs. Slightly lower percentages said they believe the change is driven by human activities.
The University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering is proud to welcome Dr. Triantafillos "Lakis" J. Mountziaris as the new department chair for the William A. Brookshire Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
A professor at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering has earned another national distinction, as his work in providing unique learning experience for students was recognized by the Career Communications Group's U.S. Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine, and the Council of Engineering Deans of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
A new paper from the Vekilov Research Group at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering is shedding light on how crystals form, and in the process, overturning a belief held for more than a century.
The University of Houston has entered into an exclusive license option agreement with AuraVax Therapeutics Inc., a Houston, TX based biotech company developing novel vaccines to help patients defeat debilitating respiratory diseases such as COVID-19. Under terms of the agreement, AuraVax has the option to exclusively license a new intranasal COVID-19 vaccine technology developed by Dr. Navin Varadarajan, M.D. Anderson Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
A new paper and research from the Conrad Research Group of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering looks at how bacteria could be used to help with removal of pollutants, like in oil spills and wastewater treatment.
The development of point-of-care tests – and as of late, for COVID-19 – has been the primary focus of Dr. Katerina Kourentzi, Research Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the William A. Brookshire Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering.
A partnership between researchers at the University of Virginia and the University of Houston has continued to flourish, and expanded to another professor at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, after the National Science Foundation chose their Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) proposal – the development of dynamically operated, smaller scale reactors that can process distributed feedstock – for a $2 million award.
