Students, Teams, Engineering, Service

The engineering school at UC San Diego is the largest in the 10-campus University of California system and we are most pleased with its TIES (Teams in Engineering Service) program. Students this summer will have nine projects to choose from to gain practical experiences while serving their community in the TIES program, which has a strong academic component, too. Student teams design, build, and deploy technology solutions for San Diego non-profit organizations. Projects range from sensor-based smart furnishings for seniors in an assisted living community to adapted toys for children with cerebral palsy.
