New UH Video Spotlights Subsea Engineering Students

The Cullen College of Engineering’s subsea engineering program was the focus of a new video piece produced by UH Energy featuring two subsea students, Nebolisa Egbunike and Megan Wood.

The subsea engineering department at UH is the nation’s first master’s program of its kind, and according to Egbunike, the flagship program couldn’t be held in a better location. “Everyone is here. All the oil companies are here, all the service companies are here, all the manufacturing companies are here. It doesn’t get any better than Houston.”

For Wood, the diversity of the University of Houston is what attracted her to the program. “UH really set itself a part in that I could work with a variety of students here, and that would really translate well into the working world.” She said she learned about subsea engineering from upperclassmen involved in the creation of the program and was immediately hooked. “I was blown away by all the things that the program was capable of.”
