Intel. Microsoft. Cisco. These were three of the 18 science and tech companies that sent recruiters to meet with Jacobs School students at the fifth annual Professional Evening with Industry Nov. 22 at the Price Center. Put on by three student diversity organizations–the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)–in conjunction with the IDEA Student Center, the event gave Jacobs School students the opportunity to dine with the recruiters as well as industry engineers before a career fair, where they could hand over resumes and talk about job or internship opportunities.

Kevin Fructuoso didn’t think about being an entrepreneur—until he took the Product Design and Entrepreneurship class taught by mechanical engineering Teaching Professor Nathan Delson. During the class, he teamed up with three other students to come up with a product that helps meet the unique sleep needs of students, who often live in noisy dorms. Students had to identify a market need, design the product, conduct marker research, study interfaces and usability and learn how to use a 3D printer, among other requirements. The class culminated in a three-hour pitch fest, where students attempted to sell their products to three entrepreneurs and product designers who served as judges, Dec. 12 at the Qualcomm Conference Center in Jacobs Hall. Three teams won $2000 to pursue their product idea and join the Moxie Center, the campus’ undergraduate entrepreneurship incubator. Full Story

Enterprising researchers and students at the University of California, San Diego are looking for funding to complete a “citizen-sensor” project that, they hope, will revolutionize global health and environmental monitoring – especially in remote and undeveloped areas of the planet. They also hope to attract the faith and funding of people around the world through the open, global crowd-funding resource Indiegogo, the first partnership between UC San Diego and a funding platform.

Computer scientists from the University of California, San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering didn’t have far to travel to attend the 9th ACM International Conference on Emerging Networking Experiments and Technologies (CoNEXT) in Santa Barbara, Calif. So why the big focus on “bullet trains” and “express lanes”? For researchers and students in UC San Diego’s Center for Networked Systems (CNS) and Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department, those transportation terms do not mean quite the same thing in computer networking as they do for consumers eager to get home by train, bus or car for the holidays. CNS research scientist George Porter co-authored two papers with CSE colleagues, and they were presented on Dec. 11 during a CoNEXT session called, “Trains, Lanes and Autobalancing.” Full Story
