Engineering Program for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Certificate Program in Innovation & Entrepreneurship
This exciting four-course program combines entrepreneurship courses from the Bauer College of Business with two new Innovation Courses at the Cullen College of Engineering.
Located in Houston – the energy capital of the world, Space City and home to the world’s largest medical center – the UH Cullen College is in a unique position to recognize opportunities and address needs involving the Greater Houston area and beyond. Faculty, researchers and students collaborate with partners from the Texas Medical Center, the Energy Corridor, NASA and more to engineer solutions to real world problems. Work ranges from data science to robotics, from algorithm design to human-machine interfaces, from energy storage to smart cement.
Here at the Cullen College of Engineering, we are building a culture of innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship to help find solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. We dare to pursue ambitious possibilities and engineer them into reality.
The winners of the annual UH Cullen College of Engineering Innovator Awards showcase the amazing things happening at different levels of the college. Haleh Ardebili, director of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship initiative at the college, created the awards to recognize and encourage the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship among faculty and students.
“Even if engineering faculty and students choose not to pursue entrepreneurship, if they’re entrepreneurial in thinking – aware of how businesses work, understand all the factors going into commercialization – they have an edge in the market. Their individual success reflects and adds to the University’s success and it benefits society as a whole.” - Haleh Ardebili
