Program Information

The 2016 UCCONNECT summer research program kicked off on June 20, 2016 at Cal Poly Pomona. Twenty college students from 5 universities and 6 different majors participated in the exciting event along with some of their faculty advisors. Dr. Juan Argote-Cabanero (Assistant Director of UCCONNECT) and Dr. Ronald Yeung (Interim Associate Dean of School of Engineering at CPP) gave all students and faculty participants very “warm” welcome remarks, to the tune of record-breaking temperatures in Southern California. During the opening event, each student presented their research topics and expected outcomes. 

During the first week of activities, all students will go through intensive training including five workshops on GIS applications, transportation planning models, connected vehicles, traffic safety and big data.  All students will present their final research work during a final project symposium slated for August 17. All research reports will be due on August 26, which will conclude the exciting 10-week UCCONNECT Summer Research program. Stay tuned for more information on the students' research results.
