EECS Day

eecsday

Description:

High school students got a glimpse into the curriculum and facilities that Berkeley EECS students encounter every day.

They were able to interact with Josh Hug, a UC Berkeley EECS professor through a talk and a Q&A session.

Groups of students were rotated between 3 activities which include: a department tour, a computer science lab, and an electrical engineering lab.

The day concluded with a student panel, allowing attendees to really get a first hand perspective of Berkeley EECS.
