Case School of Engineering San Diego is located in the heart of Sorrento Valley in a business park that encompasses more than 370,000 square feet of buildings, tree-lined walkways and a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Our suite comprises distinctive office, seminar and research spaces. These labs provide tools for designing, modeling, developing and testing sensors, electronics and software at the intersections of sensor, connectivity, computing and social network technologies.
The business park is home to a large number of companies and is surrounded by Qualcomm's extensive corporate campus, as well as many other business and industrial parks and offices. There is an onsite cafe and conference center, as well as ample parking and a convenient bus line stop.
We are connected to the main campus in Cleveland by high-speed Internet and have all of the university's electronic resources and interfaces (e.g., library, course material, software center, registration, add/drop, etc.) at our fingertips—just as if we were in Cleveland. We use the university's video conferencing platforms to interact with faculty and students on the main campus; for example, students in Cleveland routinely take our courses, faculty from Cleveland teach one or two of our courses each semester and we collaborate on research across the two sites.
Sorrento Valley is a center for high-tech, biotech, information technology and other progressive businesses.
