UC San Diego NanoEngineering Open House

This event, which is geared toward high school and transfer students, will be a good opportunity for students (along with their parents and any interested teachers or counselors) to learn about the NanoEngineering and Chemical Engineering majors that we offer.  With research projects and experiment demonstrations, faculty, advisors, alumni, and student organizations on hand, we hope to offer a great introduction not only to the University but also to the exciting things that await students in the industry. 

Our open house will welcome high school students of all grades, though we hope juniors and seniors might visit and allow us to assist with their college and career path questions.  For your convenience, I have attached a copy of our open house flyer with more information.  

We hope you would be willing to forward this information to any student or clubs at Sweetwater High School that may be interested in Chemical Engineering or NanoEngineering degrees, or the field in general.

Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions, or if we can provide any further information.
