Institute Will Draw Partnerships to Focus on Energy, Health Care, Cybersecurity, Smart Cities

The University of Houston has launched a new Institute for Data Science, naming Andrea Prosperetti, Distinguished Professor of mechanical engineering at the Cullen College, to lead the venture.

UH Launches Institute for Data Science

Proving that high-level research isn’t just for graduate students, roughly 250 UH undergrads presented their research findings at the 2017 Undergraduate Research Day. The event attracted nearly 800 guests to the Rockwell Pavilion to hear poster presentations and oral pitches from student researchers.

Engineers Make a Showing at 2017 Undergraduate Research Day

For most people the word “energy” conjures images of oil and gas operations, but the science of electric power and energy systems is gaining momentum as advances in hybrid-electric cars and alternative energy systems have renewed interest in the possibilities of power electronics.
