On April 15, 2018, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science welcomed admitted students and their guests for Discover UCLA Engineering (formerly Engineering Open House). Following the general engineering program presentation, the Computer Science Department welcomed approximately 600 attendees for the Computer Science Departmental Session. This session provided prospective students and their families with valuable program information and student and faculty insight. Speakers included Vice Chair of Undergraduate Studies Professor Richard Korf, Professors Carey Nachenberg and David Smallberg, and student group presidents Mihir Mathur (President of the UCLA chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery) and Cristen Anderson (President of the UCLA chapter of the computer science honors society Upsilon Pi Epsilon). A student panel provided prospective students with further information regarding their experiences as students at UCLA, and prospective students and their families were able to chat directly with Computer Science faculty, alumni, staff, and students during an informative lunch at Dickson Court South.
Lunch was followed by an Activities Fair in the Court of Sciences, where ACM is pictured here with a table. Discover UCLA Engineering was yet again a wonderful success, and the department awaits the new class of Bruins in the fall!
