The pinnacle of engineering innovation.
Designed as a hub of cross-disciplinary research and collaboration for UCLA, Southern California and the world, Engineering VI is the new crown jewel of the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering. Home to cutting-edge research into some of the world’s most pressing needs—from clean water and renewable energy to nanotechnology, new material innovations and more—the final phase of this innovative research and educational facility opened in March of 2018
From breaking ground to ground breaking.
Phase I, which broke ground in 2012 and was completed in 2015, encompasses the 60,000 sq-ft North Wing that’s home to some of the most innovative research in the country, including renewable energy, next-generation semiconductors, nanotechnology, quantum electronics, spectroscopy, and new healthcare technologies. It includes one of the world’s most technologically advanced laboratories, where vibrational isolation and electromagnetic shielding enable highly sensitive instrumentation at subatomic levels. The North Wing is also home to the B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences.
Continuing toward the future.
The six-level, 90,000 sq-ft South Wing, which opened March 2018, is the new home of the Computer Science Department. It houses offices, conference rooms and research labs working on advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, big data, cybersecurity and the future internet. It also features the Dr. William M. W. Mong Memorial Learning Center, a state-of-the-art, 250-seat facility for distinguished lecture events and advanced educational opportunities.
Past, Present & Future
Reshaping the future of UCLA Samueli.
Replacing Engineering IA at the intersection of Westwood Boulevard and Strathmore Avenue, Engineering VI enables new opportunities for scientific discoveries and education within a number of emerging technological fields.
As a showcase for both the Samueli School of Engineering and UCLA in general, Engineering VI is vital to advancing the university’s mission to deliver a world-class education and conduct research that addresses the major challenges of the 21st century.
Paving the way for advanced AI, new materials, bioengineering and more, Engineering VI will spearhead technologies with broad social implications that reach well beyond Southern California, enabling opportunities to catalyze new scientific discoveries, new technologies and new educational areas.
“Multi-disciplinary centers like UCLA are replacing industry-sponsored research labs. That’s where the biggest changes in applied research are taking place. That’s where the lion’s share of all research is migrating. That’s the future.”
