Taking The Reins of Power (Over Power) Wins Best Paper Award for Cullen College Team

The winning team: (l-r) Masoud Barati, Saeedeh Abbasi, Gino Lim

Whether you’ve suffered through a major Houston hurricane, flood event or momentary glitch in the power grid, no doubt you understand the severity of a power blackout. And lest you think Houston has cornered the market on such catastrophes, think back to 2003 when the biggest blackout in U.S. history left 50 million people in darkness in the northeast corner of America stretching into Canada.

Eyes in the Sky: Gino Lim is Watching Your Drones

Gino Lim looks skyward, mapping routes for drones

In Gino Lim’s estimation, drones will soon take over the sky, delivering medical kits and medicines to rural patients, relaying sensitive military information to troops and, yes, one day picking him up at his Pearland home and delivering him to his office at UH. In fact, the future as he sees it, is something he could drone on about for hours.

Cullen College’s Chair of Industrial Engineering Is Quite a Fellow

Gino Lim is named a new IISE Fellow

If you’ve ever evacuated your home in the Houston area because of a threatening flood or hurricane, you’ve felt the impact of Gino Lim’s work. If you or someone you know has ever been treated with radiation for cancer therapy, you’ve also felt the impact of Gino Lim’s work.

Thinking Like Executives, UH Industrial Engineering Students Bring Home Prize

The winners of Team Bottomliners are (l-r) Srivignesh Somasundaram, Anand Krishnamoorthy, Dinesh Babu Sivasamy, Dhinesh Thiru Narayanan Muralitharan

A team of four Cullen College master’s candidates in industrial engineering is quick to tell you that industrial engineers make the best CEOs.

“Sundar Pichai,” throws out Dhinesh Thiru Narayanan Muralitharan, who also is a teaching assistant in the C.T. Bauer College of Business. No less than the CEO of Google is Muralitharan’s pick when talking about industrial engineers and their business prowess.

William A. Brookshire Leaves Legacy of Generosity and Dedication to the Cullen College

On May 19 at 1:30 p.m. Dr. Brookshire’s family will host a memorial on the UH campus at the Student Center, Houston Room. Friends and family are invited.

UH alumnus William A. Brookshire, Ph.D. (BSChE '57), co-founder and chairman of the board of S&B Engineers and Constructors, died on April 21, 2017.

Joseph Tedesco, Elizabeth D. Rockwell Dean of the Cullen College of Engineering said, “Dr. Brookshire was a fine gentleman and one of our great philanthropists, always in search of new ways to help students and professors. We will forever feel his generosity and his loss in equal measures.”

Academia, Industry Collaborate on Solutions to Neural Disease, Injury

Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen University Professor of electrical and computer engineering, will head the new NSF-funded BRAIN Center

Neurological disorders like Parkinson’s, the aftermath of stroke, limb loss and paralysis significantly diminish the length and quality of life – affecting about one in six people worldwide. But a growing number of biomedical innovations, driven in large part by an aging population dealing with debilitating health issues, are improving both cognitive and motor function.

Ribbon Cut on New Fluor-Sponsored Cullen College Career Closet

Just yesterday it seemed to be an empty office space you probably ignored as you walked off the elevator on the third floor of the Cullen College of Engineering Building Two. What a difference a day – and the Engineering Career Services Center – can make.

Chevron Inspires Houston-area Girls to Engineer the Future at Annual UH Event

A group of girls cheer ecstatically as they drop their carefully-engineered egg crate from a balcony of the UH Engineering building. It hits the ground with a thud and another cheer explodes as the girls discover their egg remains intact inside. Nearby, a young girl beams intently at a robot as it scoots across a tabletop and performs tasks, too enthralled to notice the excited screams of a successful egg drop.

Women in Engineering Become Women in Red at Spring Event

The Cullen College played host to the 3rd Women in Engineering spring event on March 8. The free event was funded by alumna Cynthia Oliver Coleman, P.E. (BSChE ’71).

The event took place at the UH Hilton and included female engineering students, faculty and alumnae. Aside from networking, those in attendance were inducted into the Women in Red Movement, which will serve as a registry of female students and alumnae to serve as mentors for one another. 

PHOTOS: John Rogers Shares the Future of Soft Electronics for the Human Body at Engineering Rockwell Lecture

Imagine an electronic “tattoo” on your skin that could continuously monitor your health, or tiny, biocompatible sensors that could treat a traumatic brain injury at the site. It may seem like science fiction, or at least a dream of a very distant future – but as John Rogers of Northwestern University explained to the UH community last week, these are both current examples of biocompatible devices that can integrate with the human body.

If you drive in the U.S., the chances are pretty high that you’ve driven over a structurally deficient bridge at some point or another. In fact, over two hundred million trips are taken each day across deficient bridges in America’s 102 largest metropolitan regions, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Report Card for America’s Infrastructure.

Cullen College in the Community – Partnership with iEducate Teaches Success

Cullen College student and iEducate tutor Jameel Jordan at work at Blackshear Elementary

When Jameel Jordan became a petroleum engineering student at the Cullen College he never dreamed he'd also become a mentor to third graders.

“It never crossed my mind,” said Jordan.

But the opportunity found him when he learned of iEducate, a group that pays you to share your knowledge of STEM courses (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with students in Houston’s underserved communities.

It seemed a good fit. Turns out it was perfect.
