UH Technology Holds Promise for Multibillion Dollar Data Storage Industry

Imagine storing the entire Library of Congress on a Palm Pilot, or storing 1,000 movies on a 2-inch disk.

These are the kinds of the futuristic goals that could become feasible if UH engineers are successful in their bid to create the first nano-patterned medium recording (N-PMR) at the scale of one terabyte per square inch and explore the physical limits of magnetic data storage in units only four nanometers in size.

Nanotech Experts To Gather in Houston in April 2005

World experts in nanotechnology will gather in Houston next April to attend the Second Conference on Nanoscale Devices & System Integration (NDSI’05) sponsored by IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. The NDSI’05 will be held at the Warwick Hotel on April 4-6, 2005.

'GRADE' Camp Impresses High School Girls with Images of Electrical Engineering

Forty-four high school girls encountered electrical engineering this summer in a day camp hosted by the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston. GRADE Camp (Girls Reaching and Demonstrating Excellence in Engineering) ran for two one-week sessions this summer, June 9-13 and June 16-20.

GRADE Camp Offers High School Girls A Peek Into The World Of Engineering

Two one-week GRADE Camps will be held this summer, June 9-13 and June 16-20, at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

A new camp designed to draw high school girls into the world of engineering is being launched this summer at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering.

GRADE Camp (Girls Reaching and Demonstrating Excellence in Engineering) is an innovative, challenging day camp designed to introduce high school girls to the marvels of engineering. There will be two one-week camps held this summer, June 9-13 and June 16-20.

Two Highway Research Projects Nominated as 'Most Innovative' in Texas

When a construction crew pours concrete for an interstate highway, they're supposed to lay it on thick -- 15 inches thick, to be precise.

It's the responsibility of the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDoT) to make sure every highway meets the proper construction standards. But engineers with the state agency faced a tough problem: Once the road is constructed, how do you check the thickness of the concrete?
