Dean Pisano, Jacobs School of Engineering, University of California San Diego, visited TMDU.

Professor Albert P. Pisano, Dean of Jacobs School of Engineering, University of California San Diego (UCSD), visited TMDU on August 8, 2019. UCSD is one of our overseas affiliated universities; therefore, it was a meaningful opportunity to have discussions concerning increasing collaboration between UCSD and TMDU in the near future, such as in the fields of biomedical engineering and data science.
