The California Space Grant Consortium is pleased to announce our Undergraduate Engineering Seminar Series, designed to introduce undergraduate students to funded research opportunities, internships and important information about careers in Engineering. Our next seminar in the series promises to provide students with valuable information as they pursue an education in Science and Engineering.
Upcoming Seminar will be Wednesday, Nov. 19 @ 3:00PM
Speaker: Spencer Ellis, M.S. Student at UCSD
Where: UC San Diego’s Jacobs Hall, Rm. 2512, Henry G. Booker Room
Spencer Ellis will discuss the path that he has taken to get to the Master’s program at UCSD and will focus on the connections that have helped pave the way to his career in engineering. He will provide a healthy dose of information for students that can make their journey less stressful and more productive. Spencer will touch on his work as President of the Green Engineers Club as well as his internship at the National Renewable Energy Lab in Colorado. He will share information about the benefits of taking up a variety of activities outside of the classroom and outline the steps to take to gain important networking associations that will lead to internships and projects.
Spencer received his B.S. in Physics from Middlebury College in Vermont where he also studied environmental sciences. He has extensive experience with green engineering and has worked as a student mentor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UCSD. His current research interests are in the application of composite materials to improve marine hydro kinetic energy generators. Spencer’s diverse interests range from competitive log rolling to backpacking the John Muir trail and skiing.
