Over the years, Ramin has turned to his Alma Mater to aid in the development and mentorship of highly accomplished and capable students at UCI. For many years Ramin has spent his personal time teaching UCI engineering students real-world projects that offer hands-on experience. Realizing the effectiveness of this approach, he converted the course into a teaching program at his company. Internships for UCI students have many times translated into full-time jobs for Anteaters upon their graduation. A debt of gratitude to UCI has driven Ramin towards continual service to UC Irvine.
