The Cullen College played host to the 3rd Women in Engineering spring event on March 8. The free event was funded by alumna Cynthia Oliver Coleman, P.E. (BSChE ’71).

The event took place at the UH Hilton and included female engineering students, faculty and alumnae. Aside from networking, those in attendance were inducted into the Women in Red Movement, which will serve as a registry of female students and alumnae to serve as mentors for one another. 

The Cynthia Oliver Coleman Rising Star Award was presented to Tam Nguyen for being named the outstanding senior for the Cullen College of Engineering.
