Help us attract and retain the world’s top researchers.
UCLA Samueli has a record of attracting distinguished professors in every engineering discipline, who teach students and pursue promising areas of research. Today, 31 affiliated faculty are members of the National Academy of Engineering, and more than 60 are recipients of the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award.
Endowed chairs empower the school to recruit and retain faculty members of distinction whose work exemplifies UCLA’s mission of education, research and public service. Endowed chairs permanently bear the name of the donor, and often are directed to a specific department or area of expertise.
Researchers from UCLA Samueli School of Engineering and Stanford have demonstrated a computer system that can discover and identify the real-world objects it “sees” based on the same method of visual learning that humans use.
Artificial intelligence-based device detects moving parasites in bodily fluid for easier, earlier diagnosis

Confirming a century-old prediction could help scientists construct new classes of materials
Many people who are diagnosed with cancer will undergo some type of surgery to treat their disease — almost 95 percent of people with early-diagnosed breast cancer will require surgery and it’s often the first line of treatment for people with brain tumors, for example.
