Through the San Diego MESA Alliance, pre-college and college students will have a unique experience to witness the “real world” of work in an engineering or scientific environment.
Industry’s involvement will provide a great opportunity for our up and coming students to “test the waters” in a field of their interest and see first-hand how classroom skills relate to the workplace. What better way to do that, than observe and work with a professional in action! Employers can make a positive impact on the lives of students; future engineers and scientists!

Twenty five MESA students (10 from City College, 10 from Southwestern College, 5 from SDSU) will atend a 1-week Research Academy at San Diego State University (SDSU) in July 2014. The Academy is designed as a “trainer the trainer academy for understanding ‘what is research?’” The Academy was originally designed and implemented by 3 SDSU graduate research students in 2012.Comments closed
BCI research is one of the most fascinating fields in neuroscience. This amazing technology can help people who have lost the ability to move because of injury or disease.Comments closed
This seminar will provide an overview of a pilot study conducted in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. V. Reggie Edgerton (UCLA) to develop a therapy for spinal cord-injured (SCI) patients that is based primarily on electrical stimulation. The study demonstrates that following a partial transverse spinal lesion (hemisection) at a lower thoracic level (T8-T9), the neural circuitry within the lumbar region that controls weight-bearing and stepping remains functional, and can be activated if appropriate sensory (afferent) information from the periphery is provided.Comments closed
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering Research Experience for Undergraduates program will be held during the summer of 2014 (June 17 – August 22). This 10-week program on the University of Washington’s Seattle campus will provide undergraduate students with opportunities to work on research projects with researchers and to take part in workshop training sessions in ethics, communication skills, and scientific presentation skills designed to provide the undergraduate scientist with a solid foundation for graduate study.Comments closed
