Expanding the engineering profession to all.
At UCLA, diversity is an indispensable element of academic excellence. The UCLA Samueli School of Engineering is committed to a diverse faculty and student body, with programs that open the opportunities an engineering education provides to anyone with the talent and the desire to succeed. A population rich in diversity expands the range of knowledge, experiences, and viewpoints, leading to innovative new solutions that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
Programs to enable the success of all of our students, regardless of ethnic or economic background, are in place – and are working. Over the next decade, we will double the percentage of underrepresented minorities and increase the percentage of women in both our student body and our faculty.
Two UCLA computer scientists are part of a new multi-university microelectronics research center that aims to dramatically speed up computer performance by integrating data processing into memory and storage for future computer systems.
The heat is off: UCLA engineers develop world’s most efficient semiconductor material for thermal management
New material draws heat away from hotspots much faster than current materials, which could lead to dramatic improvements in computer chip performance and energy efficiency
Bioinformatics approach used to uncover the weed killer could also be used to find new drugs for medications. A garden can be a competitive environment. Plants and unseen microorganisms in the soil all need precious space to grow.
UCLA Connection Lab is inspired by Professor Leonard Kleinrock’s role as a founding father of the internet. A $5 million gift to the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering in honor of internet pioneer Leonard Kleinrock will establish a new center devoted to shaping the future of the internet and computer networking.
Of the total, $2.5 million names the Robert and Dorothy Webb Lobby in the new Engineering VI building. The balance establishes the Dr. Robert M. Webb and Mrs. Dorothy Webb Endowed Fellowship, which will be open to graduate students in any engineering field.
At UCLA Samueli, there is no single path to follow. There are a thousand different ways you can engineer change. At a school named for one of the great entrepreneurs of the 20th century, entrepreneurship is just a part of everyday life.
