HIGH TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENTS TO BE PRESENTED AT UC SAN DIEGO SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING RESEARCH REVIEW

Engineers, project managers, and business leaders are invited to attend the University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego) School of Engineering's Research Review '98 on Friday, Feb. 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the UC San Diego Price Center Auditorium. The information exchange is designed to foster research collaborations between industry and UC San Diego faculty and to give employers the opportunity to meet graduate students who will soon be entering the workforce. The program includes research talks by faculty in the morning and an open poster presentation by graduate students in the afternoon. Admission is free. To register and receive program information, please call Kelly Briggs at (619) 534-2329 or register via the Web at http://www-soe.ucsd.edu.

The event begins with a presentation by Robert Conn, dean of the School of Engineering. He will introduce new faculty, describe research and education highlights, and outline upcoming goals and initiatives. Following Conn's talk, faculty members will describe the latest research and educational advances in areas such as renewal engineering for the civil infrastructure, environmental engineering and water quality issues, technology challenges for the future Internet, tissue engineering to build and repair bone, and more.

During the afternoon open poster session, more than 100 of the School's graduate students will be on hand to discuss research in detail. Industry representatives will also display technical exhibits of new product developments.

The event is sponsored by the School of Engineering's Corporate Affiliates Program, a service to build partnerships between the School and industry. The CAP office helps member companies meet faculty who have related research interests, provides individualized access to students for company employment needs, helps coordinate student internship opportunities, and provides a forum for industry to give input on education and research directions.
