Ashutosh Agrawal is excited about how cells and nature work

In the high-energy world of Ashutosh Agrawal, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, two things turn the head of the man who always seems to be spinning with excitement about science: Discovering how nature works and seeing what happens when students understand it.

“The two best parts of this profession are when you discover something fundamental and when you see that spark of understanding in a student’s eyes when you explain it,” said Agrawal.

When Jameel Jordan became a petroleum engineering student at the Cullen College he never dreamed he'd also become a mentor to third graders.

“It never crossed my mind,” said Jordan.

But the opportunity found him when he learned of iEducate, a group that pays you to share your knowledge of STEM courses (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with students in Houston’s underserved communities.

It seemed a good fit. Turns out it was perfect.

Last year the lives of 85 UH Engineering undergraduate students changed drastically when they received scholarships donated by the incredibly generous alumnus Dr. William A. Brookshire. On Feb. 9, these students had the opportunity to meet and thank the man who made such a lasting impact in their lives at the Brookshire Scholarship Luncheon held at the UH Hilton.

Making connections at Engineering Career Fair

Aside from attaining knowledge itself, most students attend college to find a path forward in their lives, searching for a career that suits them. At the Engineering Career Fair, that job is made easier as company representatives from the Houston area drop in to offer opportunities, mentor students and share stories of how they went from being a college student to a company employee.
