  • Computer Science Graduates in Strong Demand

    They didn’t track graduates of UC San Diego’s Computer Science and Engineering program specifically, but there is plenty of good news in a new report from UC San Diego Extension. In its sixth annual report on “Hot Careers for College Grads and Returning Students,” Extension reports that the single hottest career nationwide is… computer systems analysts.

  • Former CSE Professors Join Faculty of 5-Week Summer Program for Incoming Students

    The team behind CSE's Summer Program for Incoming Students (SPIS) is growing, as is the number of students admitted to the 2014 program. SPIS was devised to help incoming students excel in their early computer science courses and beyond---even if they have no background in computer science or programming.

  • CSE-Related Research and Researchers Dominate USENIX Security Forum

    Here's an alert to graduate students in CSE who want to attend the 23rd annual USENIX Security Symposium that will take place August 20-22 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego.

  • CSE Alumna Selected to Receive the 2015 IEEE Internet Award

    She’s an adjunct faculty member in CSE and a member of the Center for Networked Systems (CNS). Kimberly (KC) Claffy is also a CSE alumna (Ph.D., ’94) who did her doctoral dissertation on Internet traffic characterization, and she has played a leading role in Internet research for the last 15 years as founder of the Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), based in the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).

  • Designing a World That Teaches Itself

    Solve for X bills itself as “people working to accelerate progress on technology moonshots.” Those moonshots are radical proposals for solving global problems – solutions that can help millions or even billions of people with a radical solution and breakthrough technology to make it happen. CSE Prof. Scott Klemmer (pictured) was in the Bay Area on June 26 at the Google I/O 2014 conference.

  • Students Get a Shout-Out from the Man Behind the Cube

    Newly-graduated seniors Daryl Stimm, Jonas Kabigting and William Mutterspaugh, who developed a robot called Ruku for their capstone CSE 145 embedded systems course (see article further below), got a major shock after a video and news article were released about their robot capable of solving a Rubik’s Cube in under 30 seconds.

  • Want to Improve Your Human-Centered Design Skills? There’s a Class for That

    More than 24,000 people have signed up to take a course on “Human-Computer Interaction” that the University of California, San Diego will offer through the Coursera online network this summer. The course begins Monday, June 30 and will run through August 24, 2014.
