More than 160 high school students are attending COSMOS at UCSD this summer. During the four-week residential program, COSMOS students – who excel in science, technology, math and engineering – attend classes taught by UCSD faculty. Classes are designed to inspire students and enhance their interests in science and technology.

UCSD COSMOS, which is supported by the Jacobs School of Engineering, hosted a reception for the Advisory Board members, UCSD faculty, staff, COSMOS students and alumni on Thursday, July 29th, in the Jacobs Hall lobby. On Friday, July 30th, board members toured the UCSD COSMOS classrooms in the Warren College campus area in the morning. Board members concluded their visit after a luncheon with UCSD COSMOS students at Middle Earth in the Eleanor Roosevelt Residential Hall area.

COSMOS at UCSD began in 2005 and joins three other UC campuses that support COSMOS programs: UC Davis, UC Irvine, and UC Santa Cruz. COSMOS is managed by the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) in the Education Partnerships Department.
