This fall’s joint alumni event for The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences doubled as an edition of the two schools’ Top Trends in Tech speaker series. Attendees heard from one of the biggest trend-setters in any technology field: Henry Samueli, co-founder, chairman and chief technology officer of Broadcom Corporation.
Dean Hal Stern of the Bren School and Dean Gregory Washington of the Samueli School introduced Henry Samueli after a convivial reception for alumni and friends the evening of Nov. 7.
Taking to the podium on the Broadcom campus — just blocks away from UC Irvine — Samueli spoke on current technological trends and took questions from the audience. Some 120 people, most of them graduates of ICS and Engineering, attended the event.
“We are thrilled with the turnout,” said Ed Hand, executive director of development for the Bren and Samueli schools. “Events like this motivate alumni to become more engaged with all of the exciting things happening at both schools.”
