Another aspect of the learning journey.
Internships provide our students with their first look at their desired field – like giving their career a “try out”. These first looks can be extremely important, considering how many different paths our program offers. Valuable insights they gain can include how their course work is applied in real-life situations, to the subtlety of workplace dynamics.
The daily tasks of each intern can vary widely, from internship to internship. With each placement, they will grow and expand their ability to think critically. They also have the opportunity to network and develop connections that will serve them further down the road, while earning resume entries that make them stronger candidates for jobs after graduation.
Researchers from UCLA and China have found that catalase, a naturally occurring enzyme, holds potential as a low-cost therapeutic drug to treat COVID-19 symptoms and suppress the replication of coronavirus inside the body.
Soon after graduating from UCLA Samueli in 2014 with a degree in mechanical engineering, Matt Kurihara joined Tesla as an intern. Six years later, he’s a senior mechanical design engineer at the company’s Palo Alto office. We caught up with him and see how he’s doing.
Dr. Asad M Madni, a distinguished adjunct professor of electrical and computer engineering at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, has been elected as an International Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (U.K.).
From CO2 to Ethylene — UCLA and Caltech Researchers Discover Effective Pathway to Convert Greenhouse Gas into Valuable Products
A research team from Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated a promising way to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene.
The UCLA Engineering experience extends beyond the classroom. Getting involved in organizations, whether they are engineering-affiliated or not, is one of the best ways to maximize your time at UCLA.
The first year at any four-year university is a time of great transition and adjustment, whether students are entering from high school or community college.
