SUPPORT FROM ENGINEERING COUGARS

"When a new state of the art multi-purpose building comes to campus, it is an exciting event.  And when you couple that with the fact that it will be a dedicated Engineering facility, it only adds to the anticipation for not only the existing students, but to those students and Alumni that came before.  The Engineering Alumni Association is proud to be able to support this new building with not only a monetary pledge but that of its full board support."
- Michael A. Ramos, President-Elect, University of Houston Engineering Alumni Association

"The University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering has a rich history of recruiting first class faculty members and producing first class engineers.  These educators and students have long been deserving of a first class building, like the proposed Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building, that will help to cultivate the inspiration of young, innovative minds."
- Trent Perez, President, University of Houston Engineering Alumni Association

 

UH is currently seeking financial support of the Multidisciplinary Research & Engineering Building from existing corporate partners and industry leaders.
