Recruitment

Recruitment of talented graduate and undergraduate students the next generations of researchers is a high priority. Graduate and undergraduate student research is a vital component of the TcSUH research program. Efforts include

  • Collaboration in graduate student recruitment efforts with the departments of chemistry, physics, computer science, and chemical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering (and the program in materials engineering),
  • Participation in university efforts to recruit talented high school students, and
  • Internships for talented high school senior students.

Application Process

Talented students who wish to apply to the TcSUH program should send an email to outlining their educational and research experience, area of research interest, and educational plans to the TcSUH Office of Public Affairs.

Students who wish to attend the University of Houston must register through the normal University of Houston application process. Online admission application forms, information on the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and the Cullen College of Engineering, and general requirements for U.S. and international students may be found on the University of Houston website.

Undergraduate Research Assistant

Opportunities exist for undergraduate students to work as part of a multidisciplinary research team under the guidance of TcSUH faculty, researchers, and graduate students. Students make oral and written presentations of projects to TcSUH faculty, researchers, and graduate students through their participation in the semi-annual Student Symposia.

TcSUH students have co-authored papers, attended and presented at conferences and symposia, and some are co-inventors on patents. The large majority of TcSUH undergraduate research assistants enroll in graduate programs after receiving their undergraduate degrees. An average of 25-30 undergraduates participate in the TcSUH program each year.
