The event, called EUReKA (Engineering Undergraduate REsearch Konference & Assembly) is a part of National Engineering Week at UCSD. Students showed off their posters and gave short presentations for other students and the general public.
“EUReKA provides Jacobs School undergraduates with the opportunity to present their research to a wider audience and hone their verbal presentation skills,” said Charles Tu, an associate dean of the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering and a professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE). Tu first created EUReKA as a program for ECE undergraduates and has since expanded it to encompass the entire Jacobs School.
UCSD undergraduates are encouraged to perform original research, Tu explained. “They can knock on professors’ doors to find research projects or they can join one of the student organizations that offer research opportunities or TIES (Teams in Engineering Service).”
