SIMS is a two week intensive residential program for newly admitted UCSB freshmen. Students engage in academic preparation, professional development, educational presentations, and research projects. The SIMS program is sponsored by the California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI).

CNSI believes that major breakthroughs in 21st century science and technology will arise from an understanding of how to manipulate, control & manufacture at the nanometer scale. The institute's mission is to create the collaborative, closely-integrated and strongly interactive environment that will foster innovation in nanosystems research and education.
