Opportunities begin and thrive here.
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 ranked among the top engineering schools in the world. 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.

Scientists have long known that circulating tumor cells, rare cancer cells that are released into the bloodstream, have the potential to provide vital information about a person’s specific cancer.
Five years ago, a group of UCLA undergrads came together with a common goal — to build a small satellite and launch it into space.
Alumnus Mukund Padmanabhan, an accomplished electrical engineer who now works in finance, has made a gift of $500,000 through his foundation to create a new scholarship at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering.
How do we save the planet for future generations? We can start by cleaning up our oceans and bringing potable water to areas that desperately need it–which is exactly what the engineers at UCLA Samueli are pursuing.
UCLA algorithm could lead to next-generation smartphones and other communication devices that send and receive information faster and at higher volumes. Research group has received $2.4 million grant from DARPA to expand the tool’s capabilities.
