Berkeley Engineering Overview & The Secrets to Transfer Admissions
Tuesday, October 5, 4–5 p.m.
This webinar will share information about the College of Engineering and provide an overview of the transfer admissions process for California Community College students.
Transfer Student Panel
Wednesday, October 13, 6–7 p.m.
Join us to hear from current engineering transfer students about their experiences on campus, including participating in classes, internships, research, etc. We will have time for participants to ask their own questions.
Berkeley Engineering Faculty Talk
Thursday, October 21, 4–5 p.m.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from Matthew Sherburne of the materials science and engineering department, who will speak about his experience transferring from community college to UC Berkeley and ultimately pursuing his Ph.D. He will also share advice on making the most of campus opportunities, including participating in undergraduate research.
Finding Research Opportunities as a Community College Student
Wednesday, October 27, 4–5 p.m.
Undergraduate research opportunities are a great way to engage with a discipline in a hands-on way, contribute to the knowledge base, “try-on” graduate school and enhance your transfer application. This session will provide an overview of the Transfer-to-Excellence Research Internship and introduce other ways to secure scientific research opportunities while enrolled in community college.
Drop-in Hour with Manager of Transfer Success Initiatives
Wednesday, November 10, 4–5 p.m.
Have questions that were not answered during previous webinars? Want to learn more about resources and programs available to junior transfer students in the College of Engineering? Stop by this open Zoom meeting to ask Nicole McIntyre, manager of transfer success initiatives.
Peer Application Workshop with the Society of Women Engineers
Friday, November 19, 2–3 p.m.
This workshop will allow community college students to work with current UC Berkeley transfer students in breakout rooms, where SWE will be giving personalized peer application advice. Whether students are brainstorming essay topics or making final edits, they would love to see you there! All genders are welcome. Questions? Contact Leena Elzeiny.
Please note that not all majors are offering presentations. You can explore each major through our undergraduate programs.
Engineering Science: The Insider’s Guide to Interdisciplinary Studies
Tuesday October 26, 3–4 p.m.
This session will introduce prospective students to the Engineering Science program at UC Berkeley. The session agenda includes a presentation, and Q&A session. The undergraduate Engineering Science Program is multi-departmental and interdisciplinary. The majors consist of closely related fields in the natural sciences, mathematics, physics, and engineering. The majors offered within the Engineering Science Program prepare students especially for advanced graduate study in engineering or the natural sciences. Engineering Sciences at UC Berkeley is comprised of four majors: Energy Engineering, Engineering Mathematics and Statistics, Engineering Physics, and Environmental Engineering Science.
Civil & Environmental Engineering with Faculty
Tuesday, November 2, 12–1 p.m.
Come and learn about the various topics taught in Civil & Environmental Engineering! You’ll meet several faculty and hear about the courses they teach and the possibilities that are open for you within this exciting and timeless field. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
Materials Science & Engineering – Presentation, Faculty and Student Panels, and Q&A
Tuesday, November 2, 12–1:30 p.m.
This session is designed to introduce students to materials science and engineering and how it relates to other engineering and science disciplines, as well as meet some of our faculty. You will learn about the areas of materials science, research and career/internship opportunities. You will also learn the different career paths materials science has and what those have meant to each faculty member. There will be a brief presentation, time for a question and answer session, and panels with faculty and current students.
