Presenting the Promise of Research

“The graduate students presenting here today are our future leaders who will solve our world’s most pressing issues.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering hosted its annual Research Expo at the Price Center yesterday.  More than 200 engineering graduate students presented posters of their research.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by to chat with the students and judges, including alumni, faculty and industry representatives.  At the networking reception, he commended the students for their innovative research, saying that the combination of our stellar graduate students and the quality of our faculty at UC San Diego cannot be topped.  He also urged the business leaders in attendance to hire our creative, collaborative and highly skilled Tritons.
