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.

It may not have been as sleek as other entries, but the Cougalac stole the show at the Chem-E Car Competition held at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Southwest Regional Conference March 27.

Named after its bulky, gas-guzzling relative—the Cadillac—the 26-pound car earned a team of eight chemical engineering students from the University of Houston a first place win and a ticket to the national competition in Salt Lake City, Utah this November.
