Transforming Southern California and the World
The school academic departments include Bioengineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, as well as the recently added Department of Computational Medicine, which is affiliated with both the David Geffen School of Medicine and Samueli. In addition, UCLA Samueli offers the Master of Science in Engineering Online program and a Master of Engineering professional degree program.
In 2000, the engineering school was re-named in honor of alumnus Henry Samueli, following a $30 million gift that supported capital improvements as well as fellowships for graduate students and early career faculty. In 2019, Samueli and his wife Susan gave another gift of $100 million to support the school’s expansion well into the next decade.
The school’s facilities include four major buildings — Boelter Hall, Engineering-IV, Engineering-V and Engineering-VI. Recent renovations have added the Student Creativity Center — home to many of its student organizations, and the Innovation Laboratory — a makerspace for hands-on learning and creativity.
The school is ranked No.1 public university (No. 2 in 2021 overall) for its online master’s program by U.S. News & World Report.
Each year, the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering and its departments outstanding graduating students with significant accomplishments and important contributions.

While browsing through science videos on YouTube one day, mechanical and aerospace engineering professor Jonathan Hopkins experienced a lightbulb moment.
To the Class of 2021, on behalf of the faculty and staff of the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, I want to offer our warmest congratulations to you on achieving this momentous milestone.
When Yash Moondhra first came to UCLA, he used to stand in front of Jackie Robinson’s statue every day, feeling amazed that legendary alumni like Robinson had walked the same steps as he did.
Picture a robot. In your mind’s eye, do you see a shiny protocol droid from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away? Perhaps a large, moving steel arm from our industrial present?
