The UH Cullen College of Engineering has developed many educational outreach efforts throughout the last ten years and has earned more than $8 million in federal funding to support such initiatives.
G.R.A.D.E. CAMP is a week-long day program designed specifically for entering 8th to 12th grade girls who want to find out what engineering is all about through "hands-on" experience. G.R.A.D.E. CAMP emphasizes career exposure rather than career choice, so you can come just to experience something new.Email:grade.uh [at] gmail.comAddress:E316A Engineering Building 2Houston, TX 77204-4005

The Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) was established at the University of Houston in 1974 to provide a positive learning environment that supports the needs of underrepresented groups (women and minorities) and first-generation-in-college students in engineering. PROMES builds a diverse "community of scholars" within the Cullen College of Engineering: PROMES students learn together, study together, socialize together, and encourage each other to be leaders here at UH.Email:promes [at] egr.uh.eduAddress:E316 Engineering Bldg 2Houston, TX 77204-4010Phone: 713-743-4222
