Engineering VI and the Alumni Legacy Campaign
The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science is building a state-of-the-art research and education facility at the heart of the UCLA campus. Engineering VI will be an anchor for novel discoveries, inventions and world-class engineering education.
A 250-seat auditorium will provide a focal point for regional and UCLA Engineering events. An engineering alumni suite will provide a permanent hub for graduates. The Computer Science Department will be headquartered in Engineering VI, as will the Institute for Technology Advancement, the school’s start-up incubator; the newly established B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences; and centers of excellence focusing on green energy, nanotechnology and new materials. For a full list of features, click here.
The 60,000-square-foot north wing of Engineering VI opened in 2015. The 90,000-square-foot south wing is scheduled for completion in 2017.
Engineering VI is being built with little support from the State of California. As a result, a great deal of financial support – more than $45 million, so far – has come from generous donors, alumni, industry partners and friends of the school.
Donors who give $1,000 to the Alumni Legacy Campaign will have their names placed on a special donor display in the south wing of the building– showing generations of students, faculty and friends of the school the generosity and lasting influence of those who have come before them. Donors may make their gifts over a three-year period, and may be able to seek a matching gift from their employers.
