Pre-Fall Orientation and Boot Camp
The Fung Institute will be hosting our Orientation (August 8-9, 2022) and Engineering Leadership Boot Camp (August 10-19, 2022) activities. Both online and in-person options will be offered to help accommodate summer internships, travel plans, and visa timelines. The format of activities and classes may be subject to change pending health and safety guidance (see below for COVID-19 updates).
While attendance in-person/on campus before the start of the regular semester instruction August 25th is not required, we strongly encourage you to arrive early to attend MEng orientation and boot camp classes in-person, and/or find housing and get acclimated; there may be other events prior to August 25th, including departmental and Berkeley International Office (BIO) new graduate student orientations, online and/or in-person.
MEng Orientation: August 8-9, 2022
Please plan to be available to attend the Master of Engineering orientation on August 8-9, 2022. We are planning both in-person cohort building activities and online informational programming throughout both days. Check out the Orientation schedule for more details.
Engineering Leadership Boot Camp: August 10-19, 2022
Fall Boot Camp consists of two required engineering leadership 1-unit courses: ENGIN 270A (Organizational Behavior & Negotiations) and ENGIN 270B (R&D Tech Management). Each course will meet in a participation-based lecture and discussion format for 90 minutes per day over eight weekdays. Multiple sections of 30 students each will be offered at different times throughout the day. This year our Fall Boot Camp will be offered in two formats: entirely online sections and entirely in-person sections.
Students who elect to take an in-person section will need to arrive in Berkeley no later than August 10, 2022. Students arriving any later must take online sections for the full 8 days.
Please be prepared to be engaged and in class for 3 hours each weekday from August 10-12 and August 15-19, 2022. You will be expected to read the material for case discussions in advance of each class session. Syllabi and readers will be shared closer to the start date in August.
Spring Boot Camp (2 units of Engineering Leadership coursework) will take place January 4-13, 2023, with online sections, two weeks ahead of the spring semester.
UC Berkeley returned to primarily in-person instruction in spring 2022. The best way to access recent updates and announcements regarding future instructional plans is to regularly review the campus’ UC Berkeley Coronavirus resources website.
