As he progresses deeper into his collegiate career, University of Houston basketball walk-on and Cullen College of Engineering student Caleb Broodo only has one word to describe the experience – surreal.
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.
For the summer of 2020, the Cullen College of Engineering had seven Biomedical Engineering students selected for the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program.
The SURF program is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors that will be not be graduating in the year of the fellowship. A 3.0 GPA is required for full-time students, and only University of Houston main campus students are eligible.
A class of graduate students at the University of Houston has worked to create seven videos on YouTube about modeling the spread of COVID-19 among different populations, under the oversight of Dr. Rose T. Faghih, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and the director of the Computational Medicine Laboratory.
Dilranjan Wickramasuriya and Hamid Fekri Azgomi, doctoral students of Rose Faghih, assistant professor of electrical engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, made several presentations at two different IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) conferences in November.
The American Society of Indian Engineers and Architects (ASIE) awarded seven of their 22 engineering scholarships this year to students attending the UH Cullen College of Engineering. The selected undergraduate and graduate students represent six of the college’s seven engineering departments.
Featured UH Research Marries Health Care and Engineering
Rose Faghih, assistant professor, and several other UH Cullen College of Engineering faculty and students were an integral part of the 2019 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference held in Berlin, Germany. The theme was “Biomedical engineering ranging from wellness to intensive care.”
Eight University of Houston students – all from the Cullen College of Engineering and the Honors College – won 2019 DAAD RISE research scholarships and an opportunity to work at top German universities and research institutions this summer.
The UH Cullen College of Engineering and Omron Corp. recently celebrated the official unveiling of the Omron Senior Design and Robotics Laboratory with cookies, punch and a wide variety of robots. Company representatives and faculty mingled with students and checked out different senior capstone projects – from a sorting robot to a mobile robotic billboard.
Seven current and former University of Houston students – three of whom represent the Cullen College of Engineering – have earned highly coveted National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate research fellowships.
Cullen College Beneficiary of Hickman Estate in Colorado
Herbert David Hickman (BSEE ’59) from Colorado gifted his home to the UH Cullen College of Engineering to establish an endowed scholarship, with preference for electrical and computer engineering students.
Joshua Frenchwood, an electrical engineering junior at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, won a Student Leadership Award from the Career Communications Group Inc. and the Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) Conference.
He will be recognized at the Student Leadership Awards Dinner at the 2019 BEYA STEM Conference in Washington, D.C. in February.
UH Cullen College’s REU Programs Focus on Materials Science, Neurotechnologies
For 10 weeks over the summer, undergraduate students from across the U.S. became bonafide engineering researchers, working alongside some of UH Cullen College’s brightest minds to solve some of the world’s most pressing technical challenges with science and ingenuity.
Spending summer days engineering can be creative, empowering and fun. Imagine taking bits and pieces of circuitry, plastic and metal to build robots, then programming them to navigate mazes; venturing out into the warm sunshine with friends to collect water from the UH campus pond and testing it for invisible microbes; or creating Texas-shaped earrings using a 3-D printer. These are defining moments of doing, creating memories and building friendships.
The National Science Foundation awarded a $999,029 grant to a team of University of Houston researchers for a new program aimed at studying the impact of scholarships, engagement and other support on low-income students and their academic success.
A paper about safer batteries made with organic materials written by a team of researchers at the UH Cullen College of Engineering made the cover of one of the world’s most prestigious chemistry journals — Angewandte Chemie International Edition, published by German publisher Wiley-VCH.
