The University of Houston was awarded a $3.29 million grant over five years from the National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE to increase the number and success of women faculty in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Last June, Texas Gov. Rick Perry drove an electric car made by Tesla Motors in front of the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin – a symbolic gesture meant to signify his intention of convincing Tesla executives to build their more than $4 billion battery factory right here in the Lone Star State.

Extreme Environment Workshop: Design for Survival -- Where and When it Matters Most

Take part in an interdisciplinary undergraduate/graduate level course which explores urgent habitation challenges which are both common and unique to various Earth and space environments. Investigations and discussions will address issues that include:

A new article published in the IEEE “Spectrum” points to engineering fields – specifically electrical engineering – as being one of the top hiring industries in 2014.

Double slit experiment. I1 and I2 are intensity profiles when only slit 1 or slit 2 is open, respectively. I12 is the intensity profile when both slits are open. I1+2 is the sum of I1 and I2, it is the intensity profile when there is no interference between two beams. Note that at the center of the screen when x = 0, I1(0) = I2(0) = Io, I12(0) = 4Io, but I1+2(0) = 2Io.

When a material known as graphene was first produced inside of a lab in 2004, the science and technology community buzzed with predictions that it would become the “next big thing” for the semiconductor industry. Graphene is essentially a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon which conducts heat and electricity with incredible efficiency, making it a homerun material for the semiconductor and electronic device manufacturing industries.

Ji Qi and Wei-Chuan Shih

Doctoral degrees are awarded every semester in the Cullen College of Engineering, but few to students as accomplished as Ji Qi.

In collaboration with Dr.

De Grazia's initial CarEye prototype.

Rocco De Grazia graduated in 2004 with a B.S.in electrical engineering from the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. Now, 10 years later,he’s still making waves in the tech community.

In recent years, the Gulf Coast region has been tremendously affected by the landfall of large hurricanes. In 2005, Category 3 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the coastal regions of Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, and in 2008, Hurricane Ike (a Category 2 storm) came ashore over Galveston and wreaked havoc in the Houston area, knocking out power to many customers in the greater Houston metro area for several weeks.

The University of Houston’s colleges of business and engineering have gained new support from one of the city’s energy leaders, which has donated money to a variety of programs and student support services.

Phillips 66, a Houston-based energy manufacturing and logistics company, was created in 2012 through a split with ConocoPhillips. It cracked the top 10 in the Fortune 500 last year, reaching No. 6 with revenue over $161 billion in 2013.

Ridwan Ajala, a beloved undergraduate student at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, passed away on Tuesday, June 24th. Ridwan touched many members of the Cullen College community with his incredible work ethic, infectious positive attitude, and dedication as a student and friend. To say that he was loved and will be missed by our community is an understatement.
