Founded in 1945, the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science is recognized around the world as a leader in engineering education, research and service. UCLA Engineering has developed generations of rigorously trained engineers and has been the home for solutions to challenges in fields including energy, sustainability, healthcare, communications, transportation, infrastructure and information technology. The school is known as the birthplace of the Internet because in 1969 the very first transmission on what would become the Internet was sent from UCLA Engineering’s Boelter Hall. The school is also the birthplace of major innovations in reverse-osmosis technology for clean water, semiconductor design and development, pollution research and more. The school’s curriculum offers a hands-on, multidisciplinary education to prepare students to take on the challenges of the times and to make impacts in ways that one cannot yet imagine. Its proximity to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the UCLA Anderson School of Management facilitates excellence in the growing field of biomedical and bioengineering research, as well as entrepreneurship. The talented and diverse faculty members at UCLA Engineering are among the top engineering educators and researchers in the world. Many affiliated faculty have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the highest distinction for engineers in the U.S., and have received numerous other awards. The School is consistently ranked in the top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools and is one of the top engineering programs in the world. In addition, the school’s master’s online program is ranked No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report. UCLA Samueli has earned its place at the forefront of interdisciplinary research and education through the very active efforts of its students, faculty and alumni.

The CTSI has partnered with the Institute of Risk Sciences in the School of Engineering to create a Center for SMART Healthcare which will facilitate collaborations between academicians and industry partners.
