Mac Lab Information

The lab is located in ICS2, Room 110.

Access to the Kay Family Foundation Innovation Lab will be granted on a quarterly basis to students in a Bren School of ICS major. Students must request access from the Bren School facilities via keys.ics.uci.edu, specifying Mary Stasik as Supervisor. Access to the lab is 7am to 10pm daily. Access will expire at the end of each quarter.

Important Guidelines:

  • Students are not to open the door for unauthorized users, at the risk of losing room privileges for a full quarter. Students are not to prop the door open, at the risk of losing room privileges permanently.
  • Food or drinks (including water) are not allowed in the lab, and anybody found with food/drink in the room will lose room privileges for a full quarter.

The lab will be monitored via periodic checks by ICS Student Council members who helped design the lab and develop these policies. The ICS Student Council has been tasked with supporting the Bren School in its enforcement of these rules.

More information about the Mac Lab is available here.

Med AppJam 2015

Student Signups are now open!

Med AppJam is a two-week long tournament where students from all disciplines come together to form teams and create a fully functional and mobile medical application on the iOS Platform. Apps are judged on various criteria and the top teams are awarded prizes and recognition.

Who: ICS Majors Only

What: Are you interested in being a part of the Bren School’s student government representing your major? If so, ICSSC is looking for Major Representatives for the 2015-2016 school year. ICS major representatives are elected officials of the ICSSC committees, in order to represent the voices of the students of their respective majors.

Why: To establish a connection between the faculty and the students in order to solve possible comments, concerns, and complaints from both faculty and students in the school of ICS.

Welcome to ICS Student Council

ALL ICS Students • Bi-Weekly (weeks 1,3,5,7,9) Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm • Mac Lab (ICS2 Room 110)

WHY: We all know the ICS Community is more divided than it should be! It’s hard to figure out what’s going on in ICS. So, to bring us all together and make sure that things like ICS Day and Reverse Career Fair are lasting, we’re changing this group!

Everyone is welcome to participate!

Our Mission

To improve student life of the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences academically, socially, and professionally by creating and deepening the bonds between students, faculty, administration, companies, and alumni of the ICS School as well as similar groups outside of the Information and Computer Sciences.

Our Vision

We believe that through a strong community, we will enhance the quality of student life and ensure great jobs for students of all majors and minors within the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Science by:

  • Understanding, disseminating, and contributing to departmental decisions including curriculum, research, and hiring decisions
  • Creating a network of alumni which will provide students with opportunities to grow while in school, and opportunities after graduation to leverage that growth
  • Provide one another with tools and opportunities to become the most competitive technical experts in the world
  • Developing nontechnical skills such as leadership, team building, and advocacy outside of the classroom that will ultimately determine success in the rest of our careers
  • Informing students about the immense opportunities that are available on the UC Irvine campus, in the neighboring community, and throughout the world
  • Creating partnerships between the academics of our campus and the related industries
