Summer 2022 Edition

As confetti pieces have been swept off the arena floors and Instagram boomerangs of flying graduation caps are now memory posts, we congratulate the Class of 2022!  We’re excited to welcome this next generation of tech talent into our region’s innovation community and join the thousands of alumni impacting San Diego.

In that spirit, we are highlighting a few alumni from our local universities to see what they’re up to.  In addition, we’re spotlighting some amazing student showcases from this past spring featuring award-winning student exhibits, poster presentations and research projects.

Enjoy this edition of celebrating our university talent!
