Facts And Figures
The UCLA name in itself conjures up images of sun, palm trees and a bustling community of social and tech-driven activities. Of course we have those, but UCLA Samueli also more than holds its own in the traditional school ranking systems. In fact, we are consistently ranked in the top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools and is one of the top engineering programs in the world. In addition, the school’s master’s online program is ranked No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report. UCLA Samueli has earned its place at the forefront of interdisciplinary research and education through the very active efforts of our students, faculty and alumni.
