Research Experience for Teachers


WELCOME to the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering's Research Experience for Teachers (RET) Website for High School Science and Math Teachers of the Greater Houston area.

RET is designed to provide teachers with the opportunity to conduct a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor, and develop teaching modules related to engineering to take back to their classrooms. The projects cover a variety of topics, such as the diverse fields of control systems, biomedical engineering, optics, and computer programming. The 2015 summer marks the 12th year of this program.

We look forward to your participation in the 2015 RET Program at the University of Houston!
