UCLA Engineering Student Groups
The student-led organizations at UCLA Engineering are hubs where many of the school’s most capable spirited and entrepreneurial students volunteer their time and energy. These clubs provide students with hands-on engineering opportunities, peer tutoring and mentorship, develop leadership skills, and encourage participation in national and international competitions to develop skills and engage in the broader engineering world.

The school is home to nearly 50 clubs. These include campus chapters of national engineering and computer science societies, clubs dedicated to preparing students for career opportunities and professional growth, and clubs offering community and support to students from specific backgrounds or disciplines.

School-wide Programs

UCLA Engineering offers outreach programs to accelerate greater diversity in the engineering field and offer a full range of support services to students from underrepresented backgrounds. The school also offers summer programs and year-round tutoring to encourage young people-especially girls, youth from underrepresented backgrounds and those who are first in their family to attend college.

Industrial partners who support those programs gain unique opportunities to work directly with our women and underrepresented students and gain recognition among prospective students and their families.
