What is UH Energy?
Located in the energy capital of the world, the University of Houston is a natural hub for innovation and bold approaches to address the world's energy challenges today and in the future.
UH Energy is a constellation of the brightest minds in UH engineering, law, business, geosciences, technology and research, all focused on one goal — energy innovation to power our lives and preserve precious resources.
UH Energy team members shape energy policy and forge new business approaches to the way energy is created, delivered, used and shared.
And they educate the innovators of tomorrow — providing a dynamic environment for students and faculty to exchange ideas and work in partnership with industry, researchers, organizations and the community.
UH students foster economic prosperity, ensure global security and work to protect the planet and its inhabitants before they even enter the work force. Together, UH faculty and students influence, invent and innovate, and they are leading the Houston energy industry to a better, brighter and greener future.
