Transforming Southern California and the world.
UCLA Samueli is a tightly knit community of 190 full time faculty members, nearly 3,960 undergraduate and 2,200 graduate students, and over 40,000 active alumni. Known as the Birthplace of the Internet, UCLA Samueli is also where countless other fields took some of their first steps – from artificial intelligence to reverse osmosis, from mobile communications to human prosthetics.
Counted among our luminaries are 38 current members of the National Academy of Engineering, three Turing award winners, one national Medal of Science recipient and one Nobel Prize laureate. We lead multinational aerospace companies, build skyscrapers and found $18 billion tech ventures. We row in the Olympics, build robots that compete in international soccer matches and win Academy Awards.
We are consistently ranked in the Top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools. Our online master’s program ranks in the Top 3.
But what really sets UCLA Samueli apart from other engineering schools is our sense of community – fostered on campus and carried on through alumni relationships over the ensuing decades.
Maybe it’s the near-constant sunshine we get throughout the year, or the mild climate in general, but people tell us we’re a friendly place. Students look out for one another, and faculty build teamwork into the curriculum. We’re a community of high achievers, but that achievement is never at the expense of others.
That may explain why our alumni like to stay so connected with the school. Whether it’s mentoring current students, participating in our Leaders in Technology Speaker Series, sponsoring a student club, or simply attending our Annual Reunion, UCLA Samueli alumni stay close.
