Faculty Sponsors

Applicants may choose any professor within the UC Santa Cruz School of Engineering as their faculty sponsor.  Faculty sponsors must be informed that NMO Lab internships are included in the independent study program. 

Due to the nature of the independent study program, the faculty sponsor can monitor an applicant’s progress, and/or sponsor an applicant’s research.  Faculty sponsors also have the ability to implement their own requirements for an applicant to meet in order to participate in the independent study program.

For any questions concerning a faculty sponsor, please contact the manager, Angel Dominguez, at .
