The Office of Undergraduate Research’s 11th annual Undergraduate Research Day took place on Thursday, October 22nd in the Rockwell Pavilion, M.D. Anderson Library and the Honors College. At the event, over 175 undergraduate students from 11 University of Houston colleges showcased their research with poster and oral presentations.

Students from the Cullen College’s petroleum, chemical and biomolecular, electrical and computer, civil and environmental, mechanical and biomedical engineering departments participated in the event.

Projects presented by engineering students covered a variety of topics, including research on improving oil recovery in low permeability rocks using nanoparticles, identifying biomarkers in cerebral spinal fluid for Multiple Sclerosis and using Oxidative Coupling to directly convert methane into valuable chemicals and fuels.
