UCLA has been ranked the #1 public university in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for four straight years. UCLA Samueli is a tightly knit community of 190 full-time faculty members, more than 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students, as well as 40,000 active alumni. Known as the birthplace of the internet. UCLA Samueli is also where countless other fields took some of their first steps – from artificial intelligence to reverse osmosis, from mobile communications to human prosthetics. In 2021, UCLA became the first university to win an XPRIZE with a UCLA Samueli team awarded a $7.5 million grand prize in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE. UCLA Samueli is consistently ranked in the Top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools. The school is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the No. 1 public university (No. 2 overall in 2021) for its online master’s program.
