The University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering has grown tremendously in recent years, with research expenditures and enrollment at or near all-time highs. We must keep this momentum going, but in order to do so, we must first expand our facilities.

We are long overdue for a new, state-of-the-art engineering research and academic facility. To address this critical need and to ensure that the forward-momentum of the college continues, we must build the Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building, or MREB.

The proposed four-story, 120,000 gross-square-foot facility will support both academic and research programs within the college. The MREB will include lecture spaces, research labs, computational training facilities, a visualization lab, a high-performance computational server room, and a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer lab.

More importantly, however, the MREB will allow the Cullen College to increase its annual research expenditures to $36 million, which will in turn promote approximately $612 million worth of economic activity in Houston alone.

Houston is a world-class city and a global leader in innovation. Now, we have the change to be a global leader in engineering research.

Houston can make this happen. The University of Houston can make this happen. But we need your help.

We are tasked with raising $10 million of the $51 million facility. To date, we have raised $1,780,350.

We invite you to explore our plans for the MREB by taking a moment to review our digital, interactive brochure. This brochure will allow you to take a step inside our current laboratories and facilities, watch videos of our students, alumni, and donors explaining the critical need for a new engineering building, and see for yourself what an investment in the MREB will do to benefit the Cullen College and the Houston community.

Help Us Help Houston. Please Give to the MREB.
