Honors College Awards Engineering Student for Outstanding Thesis

Recent University of Houston graduate Sheli Mauck’s passion for problem solving and all things STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) began as early as elementary school. As a child, she lived near a refinery and was fascinated by the inner workings of the nearby “metal city.” As she approached college, this passion manifested in her pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering from the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

Three Doctoral Students Give Oral Presentations at Gordon Research Conferences

Matt Oleksiak, Katy Olafson, and Manjesh Kumar

This summer, Cullen College of Engineering doctoral students Manjesh Kumar, Matt Oleksiak and Katy Olafson were invited to give oral presentations at two of the prestigious Gordon Research Conferences (GRC).

The conferences, founded in the late 1920s by Dr. Neil E. Gordon, aim to promote discussions and the exchange of ideas by focusing on new, innovative research in the fields of biological, chemical and physical sciences.

Petroleum Engineering Undergraduate Program Receives ABET Accreditation

The University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering’s B.S. degree program in petroleum engineering has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. All of the Cullen College’s undergraduate programs are ABET accredited.

Cullen College Welcomes Nine Engineering Professors

A combination of nine university professors and industry professionals is joining the Cullen College of Engineering faculty at the University of Houston this semester. The majority are biomedical engineers with expertise ranging from brain-machine interfaces for control of prosthetic limbs to cell membrane research for diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer.

G.R.A.D.E. Camp Redefines STEM Field Roles

Engineering and computer science professions attract fewer women than other STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields in the United States. For more than a decade, professors at the UH Cullen College of Engineering have worked to change this longstanding tradition by hosting summer engineering camps strictly for girls.

Energy Companies are Cutting Costs, but UH Engineering Professor says Now is the Time to Spend

More than 94,700 experts from the offshore energy industry gathered at NRG Park in Houston for the 2015 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), held from May 4-7. During uncertain times within the energy industry as oil prices fluctuate between $50 and $60, one of the central themes of the 2015 OTC was how to cut costs while ensuring that oil is produced as safely and efficiently as possible.
