Energy Research Park Profiled on OE Digital

Map of the ERP

It may be hidden from the bulk of UH’s main campus, but the Energy Research Park (ERP) houses some of the Cullen College’s most exciting research developments and advancements. OE Digital, a digital offshore intelligence  publication, recently profiled the ERP and the promising programs headquartered there in an article on their website.

Cullen College Equips Students for Growing Industry Needs, Chronicle Says

"About five or six years ago, industry leaders came to us and said they needed petroleum engineers, and we are continuing to tailor our programs to meet the industry's needs," Shattuck said.

The International Energy Agency predicts the demand for energy and corresponding expertise for the exploration and production industries will grow by one-third over the next 20 years. Faced with that looming increase, industry leaders are looking at how best to bulk up their workforce with trained and experienced engineers.

6th Annual Hurricane and Disasters Conference to be Held on August 1

In recent years, the Gulf Coast region has been tremendously affected by the landfall of large hurricanes. In 2005, Category 3 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the coastal regions of Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, and in 2008, Hurricane Ike (a Category 2 storm) came ashore over Galveston and wreaked havoc in the Houston area, knocking out power to many customers in the greater Houston metro area for several weeks.

Phillips 66 Donation Strengthens Ties to University of Houston

VIDEO: UH Engineering Students Take Ride on NASA's "Vomit Comet"

The UH Cougarnauts

Last November, we told you about a team of UH Cullen College of Engineering students who were chosen to take a coveted ride in NASA’s reduced gravity aircraft, known as the “Vomit Comet.” The UH “Cougarnauts” team members were chosen as part of an elite group to participate in NASA’s Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program, where they performed an assigned experiment during 25-second bouts of weightlessness inside the aircraft. The UH students studied the effects of freezing water in zero-gravity conditions.
