The engineering students of today are the technology leaders -- and job-creators -- of tomorrow. As a testament to the value of training and developing these future leaders, the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering has established the Bernard and Sophia Gordon Engineering Leadership Center, which is generously supported by a gift from the Bernard and Sophia Gordon Foundation.
The Gordon Center offers a novel, end-to-end set of leadership and training curricula for students at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels, as well as for professionals working in the technology fields.
Through its Gordon Scholars and Engineering Leadership Awards, the Center identifies and celebrates talented individuals with leadership potential. In addition, the Center exposes students to the advice, experience, and attitudes of proven engineering leaders through training events including workshops, leadership forums, and summer schools.
