International Studies in Science
The University of Houston-Downtown encourages international exchange programs for faculty and students. The Department of Natural Sciences has active research and educational collaborations with:
- Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan: Geology | Hydrogeology | Paleontology
- University of Gdansk: Molecular Biology | Biotechnology | Ocean studies
- Lodz University of Technology: Polymers | Nanomaterials | Radiation Spectroscopy | Molecular Physics
- AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow: Petroleum Geology, including summer schools for oil shales
- Bialystok University of Technology: Biotechnology | Forest Science
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm
- Summer School for Reposition of Nuclear Spent Fuel
- War Studies University in Warsaw (coming up: Political Science)
UHD's International Studies program includes summer-long research and high-impact educational experiences with institutions in Poland, Panama, and Sweden.
Interested students should contact Dr. Janusz Grebowicz for more information.
Almost 20 years ago Dr. Grebowicz created the program based on the exchange of students for a variety of summer research activities. Mainly, these are intensive education & research activities typically of 5 weeks (duration of US Summer semester). In return, UHD invites students from those schools to participate in projects created for this program. Dr. Grebowicz has also initiated the project of a summer school for the repositioning of nuclear-spent fuels in geological formations organized by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Oskarshamn, Sweden, and was a lecturer there.
Coming up: Dr. Grebowicz is working on the organization of the annual European-American
Summer School on Rocks for Energy to be hosted interchangeably between Houston and
Krakow as part of the prospective cooperation with AGH UST.
