A prominent Indian-American business couple has donated $1 million to fund manufacturing lab equipment at the University of Houston. Brij Agrawal, a graduate student, and his wife, Sunita, are financing the production of laboratory equipment at the University of Houston (UH) College of Technology in Sugar Land, a suburb of Greater Houston.

The entrepreneurial pair is helping to fund the college’s manufacturing lab equipment, including the latest 3D printers, machine tools and measuring and measuring equipment, as well as the creation of a state-of-the-art manufacturing design center aimed at small and medium-sized industries. “I wouldn’t have finished college if it wasn’t for the UH System. That is why I support UH so passionately,” Agrawal said.

“I live in Sugar Land, and that makes me more attached to UH on the Sugar Land campus,” he said. The Agrawals’ total impact could reach $3.5 million after combining gifts from the George Foundation, which will match $1 million, and the Texas Research Incentive Program, the university said in a statement.

The university will name the auditorium on the first floor of the Bridge Building and Sunita Agrawal Auditorium in honor of Fr. Originally from Lakhanpur, Punjab, India, Agrawal moved to Houston at age 17 and attended night school at UH while working full-time. He credits his university experience as the foundation for launching and sustaining a successful career as CEO and President of VKC Group.

This is not the first time the Agrawals have invested in the school. The couple were involved in the financial construction at UH in the early days of Sugar Land. They also established the President’s Fund to fund scholarships for UH engineering students.
