Stabilizing oil prices have prompted producers to return to both shale and offshore projects, but the industry still needs to cut costs.

A new workforce program offered by the University of Houston Cullen College of engineering focuses on helping oil and gas producers more efficiently use and maintain equipment by making better use of the terabytes of data streaming from monitoring sensors built into equipment. It will launch in fall 2017.

Research Breakthroughs

Associate Professor Jiming Bao and screen filled with graphene flakes suspended in solvent between two layers of glass. Bao discovered that a magnet rotates and aligns the flakes.

In 2010 graphene took center stage when the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to two scientists in the UK "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene." At the UH Cullen College of Engineering, that same passion over pencil lead is shared by Jiming Bao, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, but he’s taken it to a whole new dimension,

When asked to imagine a “typical” engineer, many people may find themselves conjuring images of sleep-deprived, math-obsessed or highly-analytical individuals.

In reality, there is no one-size-fits-all stereotype for engineering professionals – engineers come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.
