MATERIALS ENGINEERING

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Materials Science and Engineering Program within the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston. The program offers high quality training in fundamentals and applications of technologically relevant materials to enable successful careers in highly competitive and ever changing world of materials engineering. The students are offered flexible yet demanding curriculum in materials engineering to address the needs this highly interdisciplinary field. We have a diverse group of participating faculty from across the college who run cutting-edge research programs in areas ranging from bio & nano materials to energy storage & delivery to electronic & photonic materials to advanced polymers. Our faculty members are developing materials for nanostructured energy storage architectures, molecular biosensors for medical diagnostics, high performance electronics and optoelectronics. The students get an opportunity to work with modern research instrumentation in state-of-the-art central facilities such as Nanofabrication Facility, Biomedical Engineering Research Core Laboratory, Materials Characterization Facility.

Please explore our website to learn more about our graduate programs and research interests of our faculty. If you are a prospective student, I hope you will find our program exciting and will seek further information. If you find yourself in the Greater Houston area, please stop by and visit us.
