For students applying to programs outside the College of Letters and Science, however, the bar can be even higher. That application takes another week, Espinosa said, and asks questions specific to the nursing program. Bioengineering had the most even distribution, with an incoming class that was 48% women. [13], For Fall 2015 admitted students had a median weighted grade point average (GPA) of 4.5 and a median SAT score of 2190. UCLA conferred its first Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering in 1947, its first Master of Science degree in 1948, and its first Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1950. [1], Admitted students had a median unweighted grade point average (GPA) of 4.00, a median weighted GPA of 4.59, and a median SAT score of 1540. [14], The breakdown of SAT scores by subject is as follows:[14], For Fall 2018, UCLA Engineering received 26,195 freshman applications and admitted 2,987 for an admission rate of 11.4%. Data reported includes admissions, enrollment, diversity, and number and type of degrees awarded. Getting into the program can be difficult. The school was renamed for its alumnus and professor Henry Samueli, who received his B.S. Most nursing programs across the country have small cohorts – usually around 22 to 60 students per program – and low acceptance rates, Espinosa said. This includes students pursuing their bachelor’s degree, two types of master’s degrees and two different doctorates. [7] The ground breaking ceremony for Engineering VI building was held October 26, 2012 with Congressman Henry A. Waxman and Henry Samueli. Although most majors are difficult to get into, a few are easier, including materials engineering, which saw 33.1% of its 357 total applicants accepted in 2018. HSSEAS has seven departments and one interdepartmental program, which are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Because the programs are so selective, the lucky few who get in almost always have high test scores, high GPAs and participate in lots of extracurriculars, Chang said.

Easton Inc., now merged into, Semiconductor materials, RF circuits, National Academy of Engineering, Women in Technology International's Hall of Fame, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson ’86, Ph.D. ’99: professional poker player, Center for Domain Specific Computing (CDSC), Center for Molecularly Engineered Energy Materials (MEEM), Center for Nanoscience Innovation for Defense (CNID), Western Institute of Nanoelectronics (WIN), Center for Energy Science and Technology Advanced Research (CESTAR), Center for Research in Engineering, Media, and Performance (REMAP), Center for Information and Computation Security (CICS), Center for Systems, Dynamics and Controls (SyDyC), Center for Materials Research in Art and Archaeology (CMRAA), Functional Engineered Nano Architectonics Center, Institute for Cell Mimetic Space Exploration, Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation, Southern California Particle Center and Supersite, Wireless Internet for Mobile Enterprise Consortium, This page was last edited on 28 August 2020, at 15:38. [8], The school is credited as the birthplace of the Internet[citation needed], where the first message was sent to a computer at Stanford University on October 29, 1969 by Professor Leonard Kleinrock and his research team at UCLA. It opened as the College of Engineering in 1945 and was renamed the School of Engineering in 1969. So I was just thinking like, shoot your shot, because you don’t know what’s gonna happen.”. [9][10] On September 29, 2008, President George W. Bush presented the 2007 National Medal of Science to Kleinrock for "his fundamental contributions to the mathematical theory of modern data networks, and for the functional specification of packet switching, which is the foundation of Internet technology. UCLA School of Nursing has the acceptance rate of only 2% for its undergraduate programs. “And I’m more of a creative person.”. On the other hand, the College of Letters and Science’s accepted the highest number of students ie. On March 19, 2015, Engineering VI phase I was dedicated and phase II broke ground with the help of James L. Easton, class of '59 alumnus. Overall UCLA Acceptance Rate - Fall 2012. The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at University of California--Los Angeles (Samueli) has an application deadline of Dec. 1. The most difficult engineering program to get into in 2018 was computer engineering, with an acceptance rate of 6%. For Fall 2019, UCLA Engineering received 25,804 freshman applications and admitted 2,505 for an admission rate of 9.7%. “And I just struck gold. Statistics on graduate education at UCLA for prospective applicants. When we review transfer applicants, we look at a wide variety of factors, some more easily quantifiable than others.Beyond being UC-Eligible (which almost all of our applicants are anyway) there is no specific cutoff value assigned to any of the factors we consider. UCLA’s nursing school had 604 total students at the start of the 2019-2020 school year. “Honestly, that’s one of the biggest things for me, like always being able to learn, but also being able to help people and just being there for them when they’re in a very vulnerable time,” she said. HSSEAS is housed in two other buildings: Engineering IV, and Engineering V, which houses the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. [4] Samueli is co-founder, chairman, and chief technology officer of Broadcom Corporation and a philanthropist in the Orange County community. Nursing is probably more rigorous because at the end of the program, nursing students will take the National Council Licensure Examination and become registered to work as nurses immediately, said Valerie Espinosa, a third-year nursing student and president of the Nursing Students at UCLA. Although around 3,000 people applied for a spot this year, the university only admitted 51 freshmen and 11 transfers. The nursing program has an acceptance rate of 2% for incoming freshmen. The Samueli School of Engineering is notoriously difficult to get into, with acceptance rates for some majors in the school dipping below 10%. The middle 50% SAT scores for accepted out-of-state students was 1440-1550, but 1300-1530 for in-state students. Most accepted students have demonstrated in their applications they have experience working in hospitals, although a few haven’t, Espinosa said. The admissions process for the theater program also includes a supplemental application and a possible audition or interview – though not all applicants will need to complete the audition or interview to be accepted, according to its website. If she didn’t get in, she’d go to a community college first, she said. But for Chou, the general admissions application was actually more difficult because the TFT application was more in her comfort zone. UCLA Acceptance Rate 2019. “(But the process) I think it was relatively easy. In 2017-2018, 95% of UCLA nursing students passed the NCLEX. UCLA Graduate School Acceptance Rate The acceptance rates and admissions statistics varies for individual UCLA graduate programs. Using acceptance rate data from previous years, we can project that the UCLA acceptance rate in 2015 is going to be around 24%. 22.0%. I struggled with some writer’s block.”. Here’s a look at three of UCLA’s most selective schools: the School of Nursing, Samueli School of Engineering and the School of Theater, Film and Television.
