GradSLAM! Finalists Hope to Become Campus Champion

Ten UC Merced graduate students are going to the campuswide finals of the GradSLAM! competition in the hopes of becoming campus champion and competing with grad students from across the UC system.

The Graduate Division kicked off its second annual GradSLAM! with two sets of qualifying rounds on Tuesday, March 1. The top 10 competitors were selected to represent six graduate groups because they were most able to make their significant research understandable to general audiences.

Student Engineering Team Rewarded in International Competition

The federal Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recognized this year’s team of UC Merced engineering students for its design of a device that cools high-powered electronics aboard military aircraft.

In the yearlong Field-Reversible Thermal Conductor (RevCon) Challenge, hosted by DARPA and the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the team of juniors and seniors took second place overall and won first-place honors for having the most comprehensive analysis.
