The UH Cullen College of Engineering and McDermott International Inc. invite members from Houston's petrochemical industry to Subsea Engineering Industry Day. The Cullen College of Engineering is looking for partners to provide ongoing industry feedback for the UH Subsea Engineering Program, the first program of its kind in the United States. The program is currently enrolling students for the fall 2011 certificate courses.

UH Cullen College of Engineering Dean Joseph Tedesco and Subsea Engineering Program Director Matthew Franchek will provide information about the development of the program along with specifics about course content and modules. Members from industry will also be in attendance to discuss their roles and benefits received in helping create the program and there will be a panel discussion about membership on the program's advisory board, using the course for employee training, and potential research and development needs from industry.
