Engineering school's Research Review Day will
highlight faculty research projects
By Tim Stephens
Leading faculty and researchers in the Baskin School of Engineering
will present their latest findings during a Research Review
Day on Monday,
May 5. Engineering research at UCSC is concentrated in the areas of
information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology.
In addition to the research review, a special "Hard Hat
Tour" of the construction site for the new Engineering 2
Building will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on May 5.
The event will take place in the University Center at Colleges Nine
and Ten. There will be two sessions of research
presentations, a morning
session from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and an afternoon session from 1:30 to 3
p.m. Graduate students will present posters describing their latest
projects from 3 to 4 p.m.
The research review sessions are open to the public, but
space is limited
and advance registration is required. If you would like to
register online. A complete
list of speakers and schedule of events are also available
at this web
No parking is available at the University Center, so visitors should
park at the Barn Theater by the main campus entrance and
ride the shuttle
to the University Center.
In addition to the research review, the engineering school will be
celebrating rapid progress on the construction of the new Engineering
2 Building, scheduled for completion in fall 2004. A
Hat Tour" of the construction site will take place from 11 a.m.
The $62 million Engineering 2 Building will provide 70,000
for teaching and research. The building will also contain
20,000 square feet for two of the California Institutes for Science
and Innovation established in 2000 by Governor Gray Davis: the Center
for Information Technology Research in the Interest of
and the Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research
(QB3). The institute
space will serve as an incubator for transforming the
information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology
into next-generation industry products and services.
