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.

The ERP is currently home to the Cullen College of Engineering’s petroleum engineering department and will soon also serve as a hub for the subsea engineering department. Both programs are growing rapidly – since 2009, petroleum engineering has grown to more than 800 students -- and the expanded space at the ERP, acquired in 2008, serves as the launch pad for the hundreds of students studying these fields.

M.D. Anderson Chair Professor of mechanical engineering Venkat Sevamanickam’s superconductivity laboratory is also located at the ERP. In his lab, Selva and his research group experiment with creating advanced processing techniques for materials used in energy applications, such as high-temperature superconducting film tapes, photovoltaics, and thermoelectrics.
