AT THE
UNIVERSITY
OF HOUSTON,
WE THINK BIG
DATA

UH has announced a new collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise. With a $10 million gift from HPE, the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute will provide support for UH students, as well as enhance data science research activities on campus. The alliance also provides opportunities for HPE leaders to serve as lecturers at UH and gives UH researchers opportunities to solve problems for HPE customers.

 

Upcoming Events



The HPE DSI champions research and academic programs to strengthen the university's position within the developing data landscape.

From Data to Design

Relying on the latest high-performance computing resources at UH, graduate student Karun Kumar Rao uses computational modeling to find materials with the perfect properties to become next-gen batteries. Rao was recently awarded a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship to design safer and more resilient lithium batteries that could one day end up powering satellites and space stations.
