Excellence in Engineering


A service of the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering, PROMES (pronounced "promise") provides engineering students with recruitment, academic advising, workshops, scholarships and professional and personal development opportunities.

The Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) was established at the University of Houston in 1974 for the recruitment, retention, and academic development of Hispanic, African American, and Native American students in the Cullen College of Engineering. Today PROMES is open to all students in the college, and our mission is to provide a positive learning environment that supports the needs of undergraduate students. PROMES builds a diverse "community of scholars" within the Cullen College of Engineering: PROMES students learn together, study together, socialize together, and encourage each other to be leaders here at UH and in their careers beyond UH.
