Join UCLA Samueli on Oct. 29 at Royce Hall as we celebrate 50 years to the day when Distinguished Professor of Computer Science Leonard Kleinrock’s team sent the first message over the Arpanet from 3420 Boelter Hall. That historic moment transformed his mathematical theory of packet-switching into what would become the modern internet.
An inspirational light show spanning 10 decades of UCLA’s history kicked off our centennial celebration this month. Distinguished Professor of Computer Science Leonard Kleinrock, alumnus Vint Cerf, and Gaurav Sant, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, represented the impactful research of UCLA Samueli.
This Women’s History Month, we profile electrical engineering professor Danijela Cabric, who shares an interest with iconic Hollywood glamour queen Hedy Lamarr: wireless communications.
Thanks to a recent five-year grant to the Center for Excellence in Engineering in Diversity, 42 UCLA Samueli undergraduates have received academic scholarships of up to $5,000 each.
