The California Space Grant Consortium is pleased to announce the eighth in a series of Undergraduate Engineering Seminars, designed to introduce undergraduate students to funded research opportunities.
Upcoming seminar will be Wednesday, May 21, 2014 @ 3:00PM
Speaker: Phuong Truong, Structural Engineering, UCSD
Where: UC San Diego’s Jacobs Hall, Room 2512, Henry G. Booker Room
Topic: Phuong will discuss her journey at UCSD and address the obstacles she had to overcome in order to mold her undergraduate experience. She will share information about her research and work in areas from fresh water worms and near space ballooning to DNA studies and Arduinos. Phuong will convey all that she has learned and give advice to other students to help them alleviate stress and explore their educational goals. This seminar is designed to help students realize that picking the “right” major does not have to define the overall college experience. The audience will also receive handouts detailing many of the year round involvement opportunities that can enrich the path of any engineering student.
Bio: Phuong Truong is a fourth year structural engineering student here at UCSD. When she wasn’t accepted into the Bioengineering program, this dedicated student didn’t allow her dreams to be dashed. She dove head first into research, extracurricular activities and much more which has led her to a very enriching college experience. After graduating, Phuong plans to pursue a masters in mechanical engineering.
