  • Exploring the Deep-Sea
    by Paul Clerkin from the Pacific Shark Research Center at Moss Landing Marine Labs
    • Friday, October 23, 2015
    • 12:30pm - 1:30pm
    • Room NC2100, first floor, Wing 2, Newark campus
    • Paul J. Clerkin is a researcher at the Pacific Shark Research Center of Moss Landing Marine Labs. Clerkin specializes in rare and deep‐sea chondrichthyans and is focusing on new species descriptions and life histories of poorly understood sharks species. His thesis work is with David A. Ebert studying sharks encountered during surveys in the Southern Indian Ocean. He has also conducted research in the Bering Sea, South East Atlantic, Philippines Sea, and across the Pacific. He is currently describing some of the new species he discovered in the Indian Ocean and planning his next expeditions.

    • Students will learn about the value of internships, where to find them, and how and when to apply. Ohlone students will speak about their internship experiences in the sciences. Come hear about where to find internships, when to apply, and what you can gain from them! Pick up application materials for internships at LBNL!

  • The Internet of Things
    • Friday, November 13, 2015
    • 12:30pm - 1:30pm
    • Room NC2100, Newark campus
    • Speaker: Dr. Rose-Margaret Itua, Ohlone College Professor of Engineering
    • The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Web more than 20 years ago. Researchers estimate there will be tens of billions of devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, robots and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to understand how the Internet of Things will affect our lives and behaviors. This Seminar discusses the IoT Ecosystem and how consumers and industries will be affected. Topics like Big Data & Analytics, Wearables, and Industrial Internet will also be covered.
    • Note: At 1:30pm, after Dr. Itua’s seminar, Susan Lowder, the internship manager at Lawrence Livermore National Labs, will be providing information and internship applications to interested students! This opportunity comes courtesy of the Ohlone Engineering Club
