BRIEFLY

Science and technology companies with career positions, part time work and internship opportunities will be on campus Oct. 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. looking for the right UCSD student or alumnus to work for them.

Although the fair is geared toward students majoring in engineering, math, physics, computer science, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and cognitive science, many companies will be looking for students with nontechnical majors and experience.

Remake and the UCSD Career Services Center are sponsoring the fair.

Students are encouraged to attend a workshop, “”Making the Most of a Job Fair,”” at the Career Services Center. The workshops will be held Oct. 5, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Oct. 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The job fair will be held on Library Walk. In the event of rain the fair will be moved to the Price Center Ballroom.

The International Center will host its 16th annual study abroad fair Oct. 19 from 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Library Walk. Over 70 study programs will participate.

The fair, titled “”Expo 2001,”” is meant to provide students with information from numerous international study programs. A wide range of programs — from traditional study abroad programs to programs offering internships and job opportunities — will be represented.

The University of California Education Abroad Program, Semester at Sea, the Peace Corps, the American Institute for Foreign Studies, the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program and the British Universities North American Club/Working Adventures are some of the programs that will provide information at the fair.

The International Center will host a luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. during the fair. The cost is $2.50.

Over 700 UCSD students traveled abroad last year for academic programs.

Two DJs will spin on different dance floors throughout the night. DJ Julious from Michael’s Lounge will be spinning a blend of techno, house and cultural dance music. Cane’s DJ Upshot will spin hip-hop.

Party-goers are encouraged to “”dress to impress”” as a dress code of no jeans, no sneakers and no t-shirts will be strictly enforced.

UCSD students will need to bring their student ID, and may bring only one non-UCSD affiliated guest. Alcohol will be served for those over 21.

Supercomputer Center to develop Internet apps

The San Diego Supercomputer Center has been chosen by CommerceNet as a Next-Generation Internet Application Center to develop new business and consumer applications to be run over the Internet. UC Berkeley was also selected.

CommerceNet, a nonprofit e-commerce organization, partnered with the California Technology, Trade and Commerce Agency’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation to provide $700,000 to each center for costs associated with the research.

SDSC will develop applications to enhance the use of telemedicine, telemanufacturing, wireless networking, network and application performance measurement, distance learning, Web marketing and high-performance distributed computing.
