On Thursday, March 10th, alumni of the Sutardja Center’s Engineering Leadership Professional Program https_proxy(ELPP) gathered at Samsung’s newly opened North American HQ in San Jose for a well-attended mixer.  The event
included tours of the “vertical garden tower”, $300 million, 1.1 million-square-foot research and development center, a highlight of the evening.

Another highlight was an update by Prof. Sidhu on the Sutardja Center’s activities and their relation to topics and analyses done in ELPP, such as the Center’s recent Blockchain Collider that leveraged work done in ELPP as a foundation for instruction of Berkeley students on this important, new fundamental technology.
