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.
Two UCLA computer scientists are part of a new multi-university microelectronics research center that aims to dramatically speed up computer performance by integrating data processing into memory and storage for future computer systems.
The heat is off: UCLA engineers develop world’s most efficient semiconductor material for thermal management
New material draws heat away from hotspots much faster than current materials, which could lead to dramatic improvements in computer chip performance and energy efficiency
Bioinformatics approach used to uncover the weed killer could also be used to find new drugs for medications. A garden can be a competitive environment. Plants and unseen microorganisms in the soil all need precious space to grow.
UCLA Connection Lab is inspired by Professor Leonard Kleinrock’s role as a founding father of the internet. A $5 million gift to the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering in honor of internet pioneer Leonard Kleinrock will establish a new center devoted to shaping the future of the internet and computer networking.
Of the total, $2.5 million names the Robert and Dorothy Webb Lobby in the new Engineering VI building. The balance establishes the Dr. Robert M. Webb and Mrs. Dorothy Webb Endowed Fellowship, which will be open to graduate students in any engineering field.
At UCLA Samueli, there is no single path to follow. There are a thousand different ways you can engineer change. At a school named for one of the great entrepreneurs of the 20th century, entrepreneurship is just a part of everyday life.
