Schmidt Academy for Software Engineering (Outreach session for graduating seniors)
Lunch will be served!
Attend our session to learn and obtain information about the Schmidt Academy for Software Engineering and how you can apply for a Schmidt Scholars position. We will be seeking graduating seniors in Fall, 2019 to apply as a Schmidt Scholar. You will also meet up with Dr. Mike Gurnis, Director for Schmidt Academy for Software Engineering, Donnie Pinkston, Schmidt Software Academy Instructor, the current Schmidt Scholars, and others involved with the Academy. More information about the Schmidt Academy below.
Please RSVP to Alicia Creger at [email protected] by Oct. 9, 2019 if you would like to attend the Schmidt Academy Outreach event or if you have any questions.
The Schmidt Academy for Software Engineering is a three-year pilot program that will provide a unique training opportunity for recent Caltech undergraduate students with strong software engineering interest to advance discovery. Through their work with the Schmidt Academy, Schmidt Scholars will transform software engineering practices and enable research groups to pursue new scientific and technological advances that would not be feasible otherwise.
Schmidt Scholars will participate in a bootcamp in software engineering and will be embedded within a research group for one to two-year periods, supporting innovative science and facilitating computational approaches across campus. Upon completing the Academy, Schmidt Scholars will have excellent career opportunities both in industry and via graduate school. The bootcamp will be run by and the scholars mentored by a Schmidt Academy Instructor, who will also interface directly with the Principal Investigators to help develop projects and ensure progress.
Schmidt Scholars will be employed as Caltech research staff members with competitive salary and benefits.
