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.
