UCLA Engineering has a record of attracting distinguished professors in every engineering discipline to teach students and pursue promising and important research. Today, 31 affiliated faculty are members of the National Academy of Engineering, and more than 60 are recipients of the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award.
Endowed chairs empower the school to recruit and retain faculty members of distinction whose work exemplifies UCLA’s mission of education, research and public service. Endowed chairs permanently bear the name of the donor and often are directed to a specific department or area of expertise.
