2019 Spring EngineeriNG Career Fair Platinum Sponosors: Sulzer & Schlumberger

On Thursday, February 7th, nearly 1,400 UH engineering students flocked to the UH Hilton to interview and meet with representatives from 110 of Houston’s leading companies at the spring 2019 Engineering Career Fair.

Each year, the Cullen College hosts two engineering career fairs to connect students with employers offering positions for co-ops, internships and full-time jobs in a wide range of industries. Hundreds of formal job interviews take place, but students also have the opportunity for informal meet and greets with recruiters to share their resumes, learn more about the companies and speak to working engineers about their experiences in the field.

A new addition to this year’s spring career fair was a photo booth. Attendees had the opportunity to take complimentary professional headshots for their LinkedIn or corporate profiles.

Special thanks to Platinum Sponsors Sulzer and Schlumberger

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.
