Welcome to the UCSB Grad Recruitment Day

An Invitation Only Event to be held on March 15, 2024

Main Event Location: Engineering Science Building (ESB), Room 2001 (map)

From the ECE Vice Chair of Graduate Studies:

You have been invited to the UCSB graduate student recruitment weekend and we hope that you will be able to attend. Of the approximately 900+ applicants to our program this year we selected only 35 or so to come to campus and learn about UCSB's ECE department graduate program in detail.

The event is a great opportunity to see the department, meet our faculty and graduate students, and see what their research is all about. We have one of the top programs in the world and would like to show you how you could take part in it. Choosing a graduate school is a very important step and many factors come into play. We want you to make the most informed choice possible, and this is really the purpose of our recruitment weekend.

Best regards,

Clint Schow, Vice-chair
Electrical & Computer Engineering Department
University of California, Santa Barbara
