Please find flyer announcing the UC Santa Barbara College of Engineering Graduate School Preview Day, scheduled to take place on October 23, 2009 at the UC Santa Barbara campus. We are seeking underrepresented minority scholars interested in pursuing a graduate education in the fields of Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Scholars should be planning to apply for fall 2010 and should possess a GPA of 3.0 or above. We would be very grateful if you would share this information with your colleagues and students.
The Graduate School Preview Day will provide scholars with a broader understanding of the opportunities available through a graduate education in engineering at UC Santa Barbara; the agenda will include application and funding workshops, facilities tours, graduate student panels and significant interaction with UC Santa Barbara faculty and researchers from different engineering research areas.
Funding for travel expenses is available. We can fund air or ground transportation and accommodation for the night prior to the event, Thursday, October 22. Breakfast and lunch on Friday will be provided. However, space is limited so we should receive replies no later than September 25, 2009 for consideration.
This event is supported by the National Science Foundation/Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) and is designed to increase the number of underrepresented minorities our in Ph.D. programs in engineering and computer science. Scholars are welcome to contact us directly or a faculty member or program coordinator can forward us a list of interested candidates from their institution. Please be sure that the scholar’s discipline of interest and contact information is included in the email.
