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 <<>>.

If you are struggling with schoolwork, transitioning to college life, meeting financial obligations or any other reason, UCLA has additional resources to help you, including:

Year One: What’s it like being a Bruin Engineer?

Last year, we asked newly admitted freshmen why they selected UCLA Samueli. A year later, after their fall and winter quarters, we followed up on what they thought of their first year as Bruin engineers.


After being impacted by suicide in his senior year of high school, Sahen Rai, a first-year computer science student, is using his newly learned skills to put numbers to feelings.
