Highest Honors
Why are you telling me this?
Because, everyone has a story.
Community collage vs. UC Berkeley
◦ CalSo – Engineering Orientation
◦ Student Parent Center
Don’t ever let anyone talk you out of it!
What is Bioengineering?
From UC Berkeley’s website [1]
◦ We like to think of it as the application of
engineering principles to biological systems…
A very broad field of study, bioengineering can
include elements of electrical and mechanical
engineering, computer science, materials,
chemistry and biology.
BioEngineering subdisciplines
 Biomechanics and cell and tissue
 Biomedical Devices
 Computational BioEngineering
 Imaging
 Premed
 Synthetic Biology
Sandia Scientific Honors Scholarship
and an internship at
Sandia National Labs
IR image processing using MatLab
Thermal Analysis
◦ 1D, 2D, 3D
◦ 9 layers, with top layer having temperature
dependent thermal properties
◦ Excel and MatLab Solutions
Custom micro-electronics construction
 Lots of cleaning and inventory checking
◦ Met lots of people
◦ Always Maximize your opportunities!

Tips for Engineering Transfers
Use ASSIST.org and university articulation websites. Check
and recheck, talk to a Chabot counselor, then check again.
◦ Things get missed
◦ Things change
Look into programs like TAP (transfer alliance project) that
assist you with applications and essay writing.
Visit booths of any colleges you may be interested in on
transfer day.
◦ Talk to the reps and don’t be shy about asking what they look for.
Consider an associates degree if you have the credits
◦ Even if it’s not the end step, it’s worth acknowledging the victory
