The programs and courses listed in this section of the catalog describe Cullen College of Engineering offerings as of the date of publication. While the degree programs are expected to remain unchanged, the courses themselves will change to meet the demands of the engineering profession.
The college is housed in several buildings on and off campus. Biomedical Engineering recently populated the second floor of the Science and Engineering Research Center (SERC), a multidisciplinary center focused on UH Health initiatives. Part of the first floor of SERC houses the UH Nanofabrication Facility, a state-of-the-art clean room managed by the Materials Science and Engineering Program and supported by the UH Division of Research. The Petroleum Engineering Program opened in a newly renovated facility at the UH Energy Research Park in January 2011. The park is also home to several Cullen College research efforts, including the Texas Center for Clean Engines, Emissions and Fuels, and the National Wind Energy Center.
