When it comes to creating an aerodynamic, race-worthy car that successfully competes in a field of more than 100 teams from around the world, it takes not only a solid racing crew, but also a crew of dedicated scientists and engineers.
UC San Diego computer science students are venturing into Maya tunnels in Guatemala, and at home in San Diego, to bring these ancient buried sites to virtual life.
A tool to help the visually impaired navigate crowded spaces; an interface to assist surgeons during a complex procedure; and a display that can change shape when heat is applied. These were all projects developed by students in the first-ever haptic interfaces class offered at the Jacobs School of Engineering…
For most of his life, UC San Diego freshman Ronald Moreno grew up homeless. Shuffling from San Bernardino to Los Angeles to San Diego’s City Heights community, Moreno and his younger brother spent their days in relatives’ houses… sometimes staying in garages… at times sleeping in cars.
