Dean’s Priorities


The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science is one of the top 10 engineering schools at public universities around the world, with a tradition of excellence in engineering education, research, and community outreach. Our close ties to supporters, alumni, friends, community organizations and corporate and foundation partners ensure that the school’s impact goes beyond the research laboratory and into the world around us.

Through our Enhancing Engineering Excellence (E3) Initiative, UCLA Engineering raises the resources required to ensure the school remains at the forefront of interdisciplinary education, research and public service and plays an influential role in addressing the challenges of the 21st Century. Priorities include:

Students – Scholarships and fellowships ensure that promising students of limited means and from diverse backgrounds have every opportunity to excel at UCLA Engineering.

Faculty – Innovation in research and education is a hallmark at UCLA Engineering. Endowed chairs allow UCLA Engineering to attract and retain top-flight faculty who perform ground-breaking research, create hands-on opportunities for students and develop future generations of engineers.

Facilities – UCLA Engineering has been at the vanguard of dramatic changes in technology and the emergence of new disciplines. To stay ahead of the curve, state-of-the-art research, teaching and community outreach facilities are critical.

Annual Giving – Whether to bolster student aid, faculty recruitment, new programs, extra-curricular activities or other facets of the school’s mission, unrestricted Annual Fund gifts are applied immediately where the need is greatest
