Hosted by the School of Science & Computer Engineering
  • Friday, February 5, 2016

The Current Status of Particle Theory Models

Dr. Bhaskar Dutta, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University

The recent results from the ongoing Large Hadron Collider, various direct and indirect dark matter detection experiments and data from PLANCK satellite observations have introduced considerable constraints on the particle physics model ideas. The impact of these constraints on the understanding of the outstanding issues like the origin of dark matter,origin of the scale of electroweak symmetry breaking scale, rapid expansion of the early universe, more baryons than anti-baryons,the coincidence of baryon and dark matter abundances etc. need to be explored. This talk will address the current status of these issues in the context of the surviving particle physics models and their predictions.

Host: Dr. Van Eric Mayes
Refreshments will be served in the hallway of B3332 from 11:30AM–12:00Noon!

UHCL Environmental Institute of Houston Independent Study or Volunteer Student Position

Galveston Bay Bottlenose Dolphin Research and Conservation Program

EIH is seeking a highly dedicated student to assist with collection, entry and analysis of dolphin population and health data. The position will entail a combination of field and office work. In addition to assisting with daily tasks, the student will work on a project reviewing photos to quantify instances of dolphin skin disorders. He/she will be expected to follow strict protocol and to report on their findings. Other office tasks will include equipment maintenance, data entry and photo-identification of dorsal fins. Previous experience is highly desirable.

The qualified candidate must:

  • Be an upper level Biology or Environmental Science student with a strong interest in wildlife biology, ecology, or similar fields.
  • Commit to a regular office schedule, minimum of 8 hours per week, but maintain some flexibility for field days as possible with their class schedule.
  • Have the ability to carefully follow instructions, work independently on sometimes tedious tasks and pay close attention to detail.
  • Have the ability to work long field days on a small boat, often in inclement or challenging conditions.
  • Be experienced and comfortable using word, data and image processing software including Microsoft Office and Adobe products.
  • Provide two references (from a faculty member, advisor or employer).
UHCL undergraduate students can qualify for 3 hrs of credit in BIOL or ENSC 4389 (with submittal of term paper) and approval of faculty advisor. Contact G. Guillen at 281-283-3950 for more information.

Pre-Engineering Program

By enrolling in a pre-engineering program at UHCL, student will have the opportunity to explore five different engineering degree paths at an affordable cost. It's a great way to test the waters of an engineering degree, before fully committing to the major. Throughout the program, students will be immersed in the physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science instruction they need to be prepared for a future in engineering. While in Pre-Engineering, students will also enroll in typical university core curriculum and foundational curriculum courses. After completing the coursework, student may apply for admission to the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering upon satisfaction of UH transfer admission standards. These students may also retain the option to stay at UHCL, and obtain an Engineering degree from UHCL or transfer to any other university in the country.

However, because engineering may be an extremely challenging course of study to some students, these students may determine that it is not an appropriate choice. Therefore, advisors will assist these students in finding a course of study that is best suited to their unique talents and interests. The ultimate priority is for every student to graduate successfully from a best-fit major.

Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP)

The Houston Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP) is an academic program designed for undergraduate students interested in pursuing degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. H-LSAMP is an alliance comprised of top area institutions, including: Texas Southern University, University of Houston, Houston Community College, San Jacinto College, University of Houston-Downtown, and most recently, University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, H-LSAMP was created to significantly increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees in STEM fields each year. As a nondiscriminatory organization, H-LSAMP accepts all qualified individuals as resources allow.

If you want to develop skills and experience that will position you for life-long success, become an H-LSAMP scholar. Apply today!

Network Management and Security Training Programs
Are you interested in a career in Information Security or Networking? Have you ever thought of earning industry certifications to further your career? The Network Management and Security certificate is designed for you to achieve those goals.
The suite of four classes covers the fundamental technology, concepts and practices of modern Information Security operations, including access control, authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA), network security protocols, policy construction and enforcement mechanisms, contingency planning and application security. Students have options of taking all four or individual classes.

TA and RA Positions available in Physics for Physics majors

We have several TA and RA positions available in Physics for Physics majors. Any graduate students in Physics can apply for these positions.
