Student Makers is looking for design challenge judges!
We're inviting design and engineering undergrads and grads, alumni, and faculty to serve as our design challenge judges for this semester! High school students were required to design a solution to a sustainable development goal problem and the winning teams with a creative, feasible, and impactful solution will receive funding to further develop their project. As a judge, you will be required to join the final presentations which will be held via zoom on April 30 at 10-12pm. We believe that students will greatly benefit from those who are experienced in the design and/or engineering field! If you are interested or have any questions please contact t...@studentmakers.org .
Are you interested in data science? Intimidated by Python? Passionate about social justice? Want to apply all of this to your work?
Join the Data Science + Social Justice Workshop this summer! The D Lab and the Graduate Division have partnered to create a first-of-its-kind workshop, open to all current UC Berkeley grad students and designed particularly for UC Berkeley graduate students from marginalized or historically underrepresented backgrounds. No experience is needed (none, we really mean it!). Take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain a working knowledge in the theories of data science and get practical skills to apply to your research and jobs right now - while becoming part of a network of data science peers and professionals from UC and beyond.
The 6-week cohort-based workshop will be delivered online from July 5 – August 16 and includes twice-weekly live collaborative sessions. Participants should expect to devote approximately 10 hours per week to the coursework and will receive a $2,000 stipend for successful completion.
Applications open until May 1. Apply and get more information here.
Berkeley students who are Dream Aid recipients and/or undocumented are invited to apply to the Transcending Beyond Berkeley Fellowship 2022-2023, organized by the Undocumented Students Program. Work authorization is not required.
TBB Fellows partner with a unit on campus to gain professional development experience; the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation will host 2-4 Fellows (Program & Operations Fellow and Makerspace Student Supervisor & Outreach Fellow).
Fall 2022 Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology Classes
Undergraduate and graduate students from all majors are welcome in UC Berkeley Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (SCET) classes. We welcome students with diverse backgrounds, perspectives and skills to join our collider environment where we create new ideas! Please see the attached flier for a list of the Fall 2022 SCET classes which are listed under Engineering (ENGIN) course numbers starting this fall! Class details can be found on our website. Note that the classes may not be published in the Academic Guide for a few days, but they are viewable in CalCentral.
Disaster Lab partners with researchers, local governments, and industry experts to demonstrate, evaluate, and report on technology that relates to disasters. In addition, we facilitate Innovation Challenges based on technology gaps identified by environmental experts to give Cal students the opportunity to innovate how the world handles crises.
My name is George Moore and I am a Mechanical Engineering PhD Candidate at UC Berkeley. I just launched a research study that aspires to better understand the life cycles of making in small scale fabrication spaces -- such as makerspaces, FabLabs, wood shops, hackerspaces, etc. Some researchers suggest that these smaller spaces for making could be integral to minimizing environmental impact in our supply chains and realizing a true circular economy.
If you have any experience in or related to fabrication spaces as defined above, I invite you to participate in this survey. (Each participant will be compensated with a $20 gift card).
Attached you’ll find a flyer that summarizes the study and who we are seeking to be involved.
How I Made It is a guest speaker series run by the Arts and Design Student Council focused on career paths and inspirations with Berkeley alumni artists, designers, educators, filmmakers.
Our third and final speaker event is Wednesday April 27th from 3-4pm in SOCS 104, and we'll be hearing from Tanja Geis (Berkeley MFA 2015), an artist whose drawings, paintings, installations and videos explore human disturbed spaces as zones for the transformation of ecological perception.

[Arts + Design Events] Final Talk of the Semester
The Fung Fellowship is hiring advanced graduate students to join our team as Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) starting Fall 2022 for 25% positions for three upper level undergraduate student courses: (1) Health + Tech and (2) Conservation +Tech, and (3) FF Honors Program. The positions are for Fall 2022 with the opportunity to continue into Spring 2023.
(1) Health+Tech: Fellows (i.e., the students) work in teams to develop digital technology solutions and innovations to address real world public health challenges paired with partner organizations. Lecture: Tuesdays 5:00pm - 7:00pm Lab Sections: TBD
(2) Conservation+Tech: Fellows work in teams to develop digital technology solutions and innovations to address real world conservation challenges paired with partner organizations.
Lecture: Wednesdays 5:00pm - 7:00pm Lab Sections: TBD
(3) Honors Program: The Honors Program provides an opportunity for fellows to further engage in the design process and product development by continuing work on a concept from the first year, starting a new venture, or a new project pitched by a partner organization. The emphasis is less on class lectures and more on independent team activities resembling an innovation lab. All-Hands: Thursdays 5:00 - 7:00pm GSI Labs: TBD
