AIM Photonics Puts Students on an Enlightened Path
October 6, 2017
As part of an AIM Photonics Academy Workforce Development Project, the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) piloted a two-unit undergraduate course called “Workforce and Internship Skills.” The class offered 28 STEM students training on topics that are essential to workplace success, but are rarely taught in college.
The Art of Science is ready to unveil the winners of the 2017 competition! Please join us Wednesday, March 15 4:00-5:00pm in the Elings Hall Lobby for an exciting mix of beauty, appreciation, and science.
Are you ready to take a peek and vote for your favorite science and engineering research inspired art? The fourth annual "Art of Science" competition is excited to unveil 56 entries that share a visual story of creativity and discovery at UCSB. We invite you to CAST YOUR VOTE for the entries that best capture your imagination and convey their meaning through the aesthetic (voting closes March 7). http://art-csep.cnsi.ucsb.edu/voting
View the entries on the big screens in Elings Hall first floor Lobby starting this Thursday.

The MARC scholars program supports students with a passion for biomedical research
Colin Kim has UC Santa Barbara chemistry professor Irene Chen to thank for bringing his career choice into focus. It was in Chen’s lab that the UCSB undergraduate discovered his passion for biomedical research.
Kim hopes to follow in Chen’s footsteps and lead his own university research lab one day. An undergraduate research program at UCSB is helping Kim make that dream a reality.
The next big development in the world of digital communications might come from a local community college or UCSB undergrad
Tomorrow’s photonics experts are getting a look at the leading edge of the technology today, thanks to the AIM Photonics Research Undergraduate Apprenticeship at UC Santa Barbara. The eight-week summer research program provides community college and UCSB undergraduate students with the technical and professional training that will enable them to transition into careers in the photonics industry.
On July 27th, 2016, the Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships* and AIM Photonics hosted a lively Dinner with Industry for student in the PIPELINES, EUREKA, MARC, Gorman Scholars and AIM Apprenticeship program as part of their summer research internship professional training programming. Twenty-four scientist and engineer representatives from local companies, as well as the Navy Facilities Command, were in attendance (Agilent Tech/Dako, Apeel, Aurrion, FLIR, HP Labs, Lockheed Martin, Procore, Raytheon).
More than 1,000 community votes were cast in UC Santa Barbara’s third annual Art of Science competition sponsored by the Schuller Lab and the campus’s Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships at the California NanoSystems Institute. From the 40 entries, five winners and five honorable mentions were chosen.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science gives honorable mention to Tanya Das, ECE PhD Candidate, for her Education poster Assessment of an Undergraduate Engineering Design Capstone Course. Tanya worked with CSEP's Evaluation and Assessment Program Manager, Lubi Lenaberg on this project with the UCSB Mechanical Engineering Department.
The UC Santa Barbara chapter of the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) has received the 2015 Outstanding Regional Network Role Model Award. This award marks the fourth in as many years bestowed upon the UCSB chapter by the national organization.

Study and training in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are increasingly seen as critical to the growth of the U.S. economy and to its competitiveness in global industry. Long devoted to advancing these areas, UC Santa Barbara is launching a new program intended to bolster the academic success of low-income community college students interested in pursuing STEM majors at UCSB.
