Reaching the Next Generation of STEM Students.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering department has long been a powerhouse at UC San Diego with its innovative and impactful research, led by top notch faculty and outstanding students. With the goal in mind to “break from the ordinary”, outreach is a top priority for the department in an effort to ensure the future of engineering at UC San Diego is strong.
The outreach programs offered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department benefit both the K-12 and undergraduate engineering students who participate by learning and growing with each other. Outreach is meant to inspire the next generation of engineers through positive and fulfilling engagement at an early age by providing opportunities to learn about a future in the field of engineering.
ECE connects with youth by visiting grade schools, and hosting events on campus where engineering students demonstrate projects, teach basic technical skills and provide information about STEM. Over 1,000 K-12 students participated in STEM outreach activities each year. With your support, we will reach even more students, and ensure the future of engineering is strong.
