The Santa Cruz Sentinel published an article today about the Baskin School of Engineering's 2010 Research Review Day. The article quotes Dean Art Ramirez: "This event gives our colleagues and industry partners in Silicon Valley an opportunity to learn about groundbreaking research by our faculty and students, who are addressing a wide variety of problems in areas that are critical for business, the environment, and humanity."
In addition to Research Review Day, the article discussess Provost Galloway's observation that UCSC is "known for pioneering research that transforms discipines," UCSC's recent performance in NRC rankings that recognized "excellence in its electrical engineering and computer engineering programs", and the campus accomplishment of receiving over $1 billion in research funding over the past decade. A growing portion of campus research funding is through the research programs of the Jack Baskin School of Engineering.
