The many factors of success includes health.
Engineering has the power to transform lives. It’s why I became an engineer, and why our students at UCLA Samueli are so passionate about pursuing an engineering education.
It’s also why we’re creating a new kind of engineering school, one that will set the standard for teaching, research and entrepreneurship in the 21st Century. Let me tell you a little bit about what we have in mind…
Over the next few years we will grow our student body and expand the size of our faculty, which will allow us to better serve the people of California while accommodating many more of the talented applicants who seek to attend UCLA Samueli. In doing so, as a public university, we are committed to providing access [Link to Access page] to all, and supporting those groups of students that traditionally have been underrepresented in engineering, including women and minorities.
Health can have a dramatic impact on our ability pursue educational advancement. To address this we ask all students to take the time to look after themselves – from precautionary medical treatment/visits to addressing health issues before they escalate to seeking counseling. Please contact your own health providers or take advantage of services offered through UCLA << http://www.studenthealth.ucla.edu/default.aspx>>.

UCLA electrical engineering graduate student Glen Meyerowitz is developing a low-cost ventilator in collaboration with medical professionals at UCLA Health.
Bioengineering professor and director of the Makerspace demonstrates laser-cutting face shields and 3D-printing headbands, while electric engineering doctoral student Glen Meyerowitz showcases a ventilator prototype he designed using everyday household materials.
A research team from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated that a specially designed surface is able to reduce friction from flowing water by nearly a third. This was done in a first-ever successful boat test on open water in Marina Del Rey, California.
With a deluge of patients suffering from COVID-19 expected to flood hospitals in the very near future, UCLA engineers are part of a quickly growing team working to build up supplies of personal protective equipment for health care workers.
Bioengineers at UCLA Samueli School of Engineering and their colleagues have developed and successfully demonstrated a wearable fabric that can harvest and store energy from the sun.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority has awarded a three-year grant to UCLA to create a database of earthquake fault displacements and develop a predictive model to estimate the fault displacements.
