The UH Cullen College of Engineering welcomes four National Academy of Engineering members to its faculty roster in the 2016- 2017 academic year, bringing the total number of NAE faculty members at the college to 13.
A multidisciplinary research team led by University of Houston scientist Jarek Wosik has developed a high-temperature superconducting coil that allows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners to produce higher resolution images or acquire images in a shorter time than when using conventional coils.
Researchers from the University of Houston have reported the first explanation for how a class of materials changes during production to more efficiently absorb light, a critical step toward the large-scale manufacture of better and less-expensive solar panels.
Three years after his discovery of porous gold nanoparticles – gold nanoparticles that offer a larger surface area because of their porous nature – a UH Cullen College of Engineering researcher is continuing to explore the science and potential applications.
Raquel Padilla, an electrical and computer engineering alumna from the UH Cullen College, was recently spotlighted in the Lunar Cougar. In a Q&A feature conducted by Joelle Carson, Padilla spoke about her introduction to the world of engineering, her favorite UH memories and her career trajectory and future goals.
A robotics expert with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering will meet with members of Congress and other scientists next month to discuss the National Science Foundation’s National Robotics Initiative.
Researchers at the Cullen College of Engineering have discovered an innovative method for destroying bacteria in a matter of seconds by using light to heat highly porous gold nanodisks. A research paper describing the method was featured on the cover of the April issue of Optical Materials Express.
The UH Cullen College of Engineering is well on its way to becoming a Top 50 engineering college in the nation, earning a coveted spot on the list of the Best Engineering Schools of 2017 by U.S. News and World Report.
