Friends of the UH Cullen College of Engineering gathered for barbeque, drinks and games to celebrate the college’s 75th anniversary and gear up for the 2016 UH Football Homecoming game on Saturday, Nov. 12th outside of Engineering Building 1.

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the Cullen College enjoyed beer and wine provided by the Engineering Alumni Association and free barbeque catered by Demeris BBQ. Attendees also entered to win raffle prizes that were announced throughout the event.

Some of the college’s most active and vibrant student groups and professional organizations set up display tables and performed demonstrations of their work to fellow engineering Coogs. Students from the UH Society of Automotive Engineers parked their hand-built Formula One-style racecar outside of Engineering Building 1, allowing partygoers to sit inside the cockpit for photos inside of the racecar. UH engineering students who work in the laboratory of electrical and computer engineering professor Aaron Becker gave robotics demonstrations throughout the event, driving a robotic vehicle throughout the lobby of Engineering Building 1 and displaying sets of Texas-shaped earrings bearing the UH logo that were created using robots in Becker’s lab.

The 2016 Engineering Homecoming and 75th Anniversary Celebration was sponsored by Fluor and the Cullen College of Engineering.
