Weekly Memo

Dear members of the Hajim School community:

I would like to start this week’s memo by congratulating Duncan Moore, the Rudolf and Hilda Kingslake Professor of Optical Engineering and Vice Provost for entrepreneurship, on his election as president of the International Commission for Optics (ICO). Duncan is just the fourth American elected president of the commission, which currently provides support for optics and photonics in developing economies. He will serve a three-year term beginning October 1st and will bring his enthusiasm for technical entrepreneurship with him. Good luck in your new role Duncan!

Speaking of enthusiasm and entrepreneurship, I encourage you to come learn about the master's degree program in Technical Entrepreneurship and Management at an information session hosted by Duncan and Andrea Galati at 4 p.m. Tuesday, September 20, in the Center for Entrepreneurship, 1-211 Carol Simon Hall. RSVP to 276-3500 or andrea.galati@rochester.edu.

I’d also like to pass along a few opportunities. Microsoft Student Partners is currently recruiting tech-savvy students to explore products, software, and reference materials and share their experiences with their fellow classmates. Student partners get direct interaction with Microsoft professionals and the inside scoop on future job opportunities. For more information, email Donna Johnson at donna.johnson@rochester.edu or apply here. In addition, Epic, a company that develops software for medical groups, hospitals, and other health care organizations will be on campus to discuss opportunities for graduating seniors. Stop by Dewey 1-101 Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. for food and discussion.

Keep the information and news coming and have another great week!
