    Future Achievers in Science and Technology (FAST)

    Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are planning to host our FAST program virtually for the 2020 academic year. More information will be available soon.

    Please review this message from Thyra Briggs, Vice President of Admission for more information on our office’s response to COVID-19.

    2020 Dates: September 26 and October 10

    The Future Achievers in Science and Technology (FAST) program is free to apply to and free to attend if invited. The program  provides high-achieving, college-bound high school seniors with an opportunity to interact with Harvey Mudd students, professors and other college-bound students who share a passion for the STEM fields. FAST will be an online program running on three separate dates. FAST participants will learn first hand about our campus community by getting to know and working with current students and admission staff via virtual mini groups. FAST will also have sessions to learn about research, student life and a session to ask admission staff any questions you have about our admission process.
     
    The FAST program is intended for students from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM – women, underrepresented minorities, students from low income or rural backgrounds, students with disabilities, students who are first-generation to college.
     
    • APPLY TO FAST! _ DEADLINE:  (APPLICATION COMING SOON!)
    • Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, our FAST program will look a little different this year as the program will go virtual.

    UCI VE CG

    Irvine, Calif., March 30, 2016 — UC Irvine is launching an official e-sports initiative this fall, the first of its kind at a public research university. A state-of-the-art arena equipped with high-end gaming PCs, a stage for League of Legends competitions and a live webcasting studio will be constructed at the Student Center, and as many as 10 academic scholarships will be offered to students on the team.

    UCI eSports will be built on four pillars: competition, academics, entertainment and community,” said Thomas Parham, vice chancellor for student affairs. “We hope to attract the best gamers from around the world, and our academic programs in computer gaming science, digital arts, computer science, engineering, anthropology, law, medicine, neuroscience and behavior create a strong foundation for research and inquiry related to gaming.”

    The gaming center will also give non-team students a chance to participate in fun leisure activities on campus while balancing academic and research endeavors, he added.

    UCI is home to a dedicated gaming community. A recent survey of students found that 72 percent identify as gamers and 89 percent support the creation of an e-sports team. College Magazine ranked UCI the No. 1 school for gamers in 2015. The Association of Gamers boasts the highest membership of any student club on campus, and the computer game science major in the Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences is the largest in the country.

    In addition, UCI’s Institute for Virtual Environments & Computer Games facilitates multidisciplinary research projects in the fields of anthropology, art, computer science, engineering, history, medicine, psychology, science and technology.

    Los Angeles-based Riot Games – the studio behind League of Legends – has pledged its support for the eSports initiative and will work with UCI to offer a premium League of Legends gaming experience.

    “The UCI community is one of over 300 student-run gaming clubs we currently support,” said Ramon Hermann, head of the collegiate program at Riot Games. “We’re honored to work with UCI to create a permanent home for gamers on campus and hope this will inspire similar programs at colleges and universities across North America.”

    Custom gaming computer maker iBuyPower is equipping the 3,500-square-foot eSports arena with 80 of its high-end gaming PCs loaded with the most popular video game titles. Also available for classes and research projects, the Student Center space will be a major hub for social and competitive gaming in Southern California. UCI’s League of Legends team will compete in next year’s collegiate tournaments.

    This summer, Jane Street is hosting the eighth annual Jane Street Women in STEM event. We are inviting women graduating from high school this spring to spend two days learning more about what we do and how we do it.

    Students who are selected to attend this event will receive an in-depth look into the ways we use math, computer science and probability concepts in trading, as well as insight into the different roles that exist within our firm. Participants will hear from and interact with various traders and technologists, and learn how they transitioned from their college concentrations in STEM fields to a career at Jane Street.

    Some highlights of the event include a talk from Sandor Lehoczky and a panel of new hires explaining the different roles at Jane Street, including trading, software engineering, and quantitative research. We will also enjoy a few virtual social events, which will provide additional opportunities to get to know Jane Street and the other women attending the event.

    While we wish we could host the event in our NYC office, located in the heart of the Financial District, we are equally excited to make this first remote Jane Street Women in STEM event special, informative and interactive.
