Transforming Southern California and the World
The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science includes more than 6,500 undergraduate and graduate students and 190 full-time faculty members. Established in 1945, UCLA Samueli is known as the birthplace of the internet, and where countless other fields took some of their first steps — from artificial intelligence to reverse osmosis, from mobile communications to human prosthetics.
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.
UCLA Samueli is in the midst of an extraordinary period of growth, with expansion in the number of research labs, faculty and students. New faculty will bring expertise in emerging research areas, such as engineering in medicine, quantum technologies, and sustainable and resilient urban systems.
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 as of 2023 for its online master’s program by U.S. News & World Report.
