The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS) at UCLA, founded in 1945, is committed to providing a rigorous hands-on engineering education to undergraduate and graduate students. Recognized nationally and internationally as a top engineering program, UCLA Engineering is the birthplace of the Internet and has developed breakthrough technologies in wireless communication, solar energy, clean water, and much more. As part of a great public University, the school is committed to a core mission of teaching, research, and service.
UCLA Engineering supports dynamic programs in traditional and new disciplines and pursues cutting-edge research in areas such as advanced healthcare technologies, new materials, next-generation communications and memory devices, software, computer analytics, and cybersecurity, robotics, technologies and systems for the aerospace industry and space exploration, renewable energy, and sustainable and resilient infrastructure systems. Partnerships across campus reflect the school’s commitment to a wide range of interdisciplinary activities.
Students receive their education through lectures, hands-on experience in laboratories, and solving real-world problems. The undergraduate degree curriculum provides exposure to the humanities, social sciences, life sciences, and the arts. It also includes a technical breadth requirement, designed to provide students with working knowledge of a technical field outside their major. The school emphasizes that engineers must uphold high ethical standards in creating and managing technology and is committed to training engineers from diverse backgrounds. Opportunities exist for students to gain exposure to entrepreneurship and commercialization of technologies. Undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in industrial internships and academic research. Students are committed to a high standard of achievement and service to society, consistent with the mission of the school and the University.
