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>>.

Many people who are diagnosed with cancer will undergo some type of surgery to treat their disease — almost 95 percent of people with early-diagnosed breast cancer will require surgery and it’s often the first line of treatment for people with brain tumors, for example.
