The new flagship facility for UCLA Samueli School of Engineering is up — and stunning. Engineering VI’s design and prominent location on campus befits the school’s reputation and vision.
Connecting UCLA and the World
The new building will house the computer science department. UCLA engineers and computer scientists have helped connect the world seamlessly and securely since sending the world’s first Internet message in 1969, and the new building will facilitate connections, too. It strategically links to Engineering IV and V and UCLA’s main campus and includes a 250-seat auditorium/lecture hall with state-of-the-art distance learning capabilities. Interactive spaces of various configurations also will enable the collaborative work of the department.
A Collaborative Effort
Donors have played and continue to play an important role in creating this dynamic environment for innovation and education. More than 15 donors have given significant support to the project, associating their legacies with this important landmark and with a brighter future for all.
From this sustainable, modern space that integrates outdoor areas and natural light, UCLA will forward efforts in machine learning, cybersecurity, networking and future Internet, artificial intelligence, and more — all toward very real progress.
