UH Cullen College's 'Parameters' Magazine Wins Crystal Award from American Marketing Association

The UH Cullen College of Engineering's biannual Parameters magazine earned the American Marketing Association's (AMA) Crystal Award for best public relations/communications newsletter. Finalists in the category included UH's Bauer College of Business and Houston Methodist Hospital.

The AMA Crystal Awards are given to Texas' top marketers in categories ranging from print and radio to website design and social media.

The Cullen College's Office of Communications was recognized at the AMA Crystal Awards Gala - the largest marketing event in Houston, attracting more than 650 marketing professionals from almost every industry in Houston - on Thursday, May 10.

The spring and fall 2017 editions of Parameters magazine challenged stereotypes about engineers and engineering head-on.

In the spring 2017 issue of Parameters, we introduce readers to the "Secret Lives of Engineers" - that is, the creative and unique interests, hobbies and talents that UH Engineering professors and students possess and pursue.

In the fall 2017 issue of Parameters, "The Houston Dream," we tell the personal stories of our engineering students and professors, who all come from very different backgrounds and cultures but all share the same dream of being world-class engineers.

UH grad Walheim continues to plot course for the stars

Rex Walheim, a 1989 graduate of the Industrial Engineering Masters program at UH, is now at the private company Axiom Space after retiring from NASA. The agency noted that he spent almost 36 years in government service, 36 days in space, and 36 hours on spacewalks.

When Rex Walheim first enrolled at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering's Masters program in Industrial Engineering in the 1980s, his goals were literally sky high. At the time, he was a flight controller at the Johnson Space Center and a lieutenant in the United States Air Force, and he hadn't yet flown a vessel himself.
