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.
UCLA Samueli is consistently ranked in the Top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools and its online program is ranked No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report.
Through its scholarships and mentoring programs, the UCLA Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity (CEED) provides students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented with opportunities to succeed at UCLA and beyond,
More than 55 years after earning his bachelor’s degree from UCLA Engineering, Augustine Esogbue still recalls fondly his time at the school.
UCLA Samueli departments and student organizations had been busy organizing virtual career fairs in October and November to help students connect with industry.
