We asked a few of our undergrads here at the UH Cullen College of Engineering to film their lives for two weeks so we can show the world an honest, first-hand account of what it is like to be an engineering student at the University of Houston. Using the footage shot by three Cullen College of Engineering students, we produced a video to give our prospective students a closer look into the life of a Cullen College undergrad.

Ask any professor: A good idea alone isn’t likely to receive serious research funding. Big awards almost always have some data that supports the project, that shows the researcher’s idea should work.

In a classic catch-22, though, getting this data itself takes money. Materials for experiments, graduate student time, lab space, computing power – none of these are free.
