Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Tracy Ngu graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the UH Cullen College of Engineering in May 2012. She now works as a process engineer at Technip USA here in Houston.

While at the Cullen College, Tracy was an active member of the PROMES (Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies) Program, which offers specialized curricula that emphasizes academic success strategies and personal and professional skills development.

PROMES students participate in peer-led collaborative learning workshops supporting math, science, and engineering courses. Upper division students facilitate these workshops and receive stipends in return for their service. Tracy served as an assistant facilitator for the Chemical Transport and Chemical Processes PROMES workshops during her time in the PROMES Program, explaining that it helped her to gain confidence, overcome her shyness, and meet new friends.

"These programs are great, and I do recommend engineering students to join upon entering the university," Tracy said. "I wouldn’t have met most of my friends if it was not for PROMES. PROMES allowed me to interact with different engineering disciplines."
