Associates Events


The Associates are invited to join engaging, exclusive events showcasing Caltech faculty, students, and alumni who are pushing back the frontiers of science, technology, and engineering.

With approximately 20 dynamic events each year held in Southern California, Northern California, and New York City, the Caltech Associates program offers regular opportunities to learn about what's new and what's next—directly from the people defining future directions in a broad range of disciplines. Event Q&A sessions afford the chance to gain even more insight.

These intimately scaled gatherings allow for one-on-one interaction with faculty members at the forefront of their fields. Plus provides opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with individuals who share similar interests in the world around them.

Experience a Caltech Associates event by viewing our annual Holiday Luncheon in 2021 featuring Professors Katherine De Kleer and Mike Brown discussing Jupiter's Moons.
