Each summer, the University of Utah ECE department invites a select group of students from the Utah Asia Campus for a two-week tour of the Salt Lake Campus. As a part of their visit, students will stay in on-campus housing and meet a variety of ECE faculty to learn about their research labs and current projects. Guided private tours of the Utah Nanofabrication lab, Blackrock Neurotech, Adobe, Texas Instruments, and other locations are another highlight of this experience. Students will also have the opportunity to travel to the Utah State Capitol and visit some of Utah’s beautiful National Parks to see the landscape and learn about the history of the state of Utah. This is an unforgettable experience for students in their academic journey as they prepare to eventually complete their studies here in Utah.
