Electrical and Computer Engineering

A proud tradition of inventing the future.

Smart phones. Electric grids. Space sensors. Cars with more intelligence than a computer from just a decade ago. The UCLA Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is part of a proud tradition of inventions that have transformed civilization.

The department is divided into three primary research areas: Circuits & Embedded Systems, Physical & Wave Electronics, and Signals & Systems, although much of our research is multi-disciplinary and features collaborations in various fields including medicine, physics, mathematics, and theater & film.

Year One: What’s it like being a Bruin Engineer?

Last year, we asked newly admitted freshmen why they selected UCLA Samueli. A year later, after their fall and winter quarters, we followed up on what they thought of their first year as Bruin engineers.


After being impacted by suicide in his senior year of high school, Sahen Rai, a first-year computer science student, is using his newly learned skills to put numbers to feelings.
