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.
The UCLA Samueli School of Engineering is proud to announce that seven faculty members have been selected to hold endowed faculty chairs.
After graduating from UCLA Samueli in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science, Josh Hyman (’05, MS ’08, Ph.D. ’10) accepted an offer to work full-time at Google.

A team of UCLA, Caltech and Ford Motor Company researchers has improved fuel-cell technologies to exceed U.S. Department of Energy targets in efficiency, stability and power. No other reported fuel cells have reached all these milestones simultaneously.
The first year at a four-year university can be daunting, especially in the current environment of remote learning, but the Transfer Bridge to UCLA Engineering program aims to ease the transition for transfer students.
B. John Garrick (M.S. ’62, Ph.D. ’68), an international authority on quantitative risk assessment and a distinguished adjunct professor of materials science and engineering at UCLA, passed away Sunday due to complications from a fall. He was 90.
