MICA Information Session

September 4, 2007
Location: ASB 9896

On Sep. 4th, 2007, the Medical Image Analysis and Medical Computing Labs held an information session.  Undergraduate students from Computing Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Kinesiology attended the session, which included talks by lab directors and graduate students, an informal gathering over snacks and drinks, as well as a visit to the to the lab and viewing and participating in project demos.  The event was very well attended, with students from all four invited faculties joining us to learn about the kinds of research that we do, and the skills and courses that undergraduate students should develop and take in order to best prepare themselves for eventual work in our research areas. Due to the success of this event, we expect to hold similar events annually, with the objective of helping undergraduates prepare early so that they may enjoy greater success as graduate students in medical computing.

To learn more about our group, view this handout or visit our lab in person!
