UCLA Engineering is developing solutions for 21st century challenges. Engineering VI will create a hub for cross-disciplinary research.
Fostering the cross-disciplinary research that drives new technologies and enhances UCLA’s tradition of excellence, the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science is building an anchor for innovation at the heart of the campus. More than just a building, Engineering VI will be a space that creates and spurs innovation.
Plans for the new state-of-the-art facility call for it to be a showcase for the university and the region. Within its walls, UCLA researchers will make advances across the engineering spectrum as they tackle challenges in nanotechnology, health care, renewable energy, information science, electronics, infrastructure, wireless technology, aerospace and new materials.
Engineering VI will serve as an incubator for developing and commercializing new technologies discovered at UCLA; new discoveries that will benefit the Southern California economy and improve technologies around the world.
Here are just some of Engineering VI’s planned features:
• The Dr. William M.W. Mong Memorial Learning Center, a technology-enabled 250-seat facility.
• Externally funded national centers of excellence in nanoelectronics, nanotechnology and green energy.
• The Institute for Technology Advancement, which helps launch companies based on UCLA Engineering innovations and attracts funding for directed research.
• Offices and laboratories for research in information science, information technology and computation.
• Purpose-built labs, including facilities shielded against vibrational and electromagnetic interference.
• The Lawrence and Carol Tannas Alumni Suite, linking UCLA Engineering’s past innovators and scholars to the faculty and the next generations of Bruin engineers.
• Construction to LEED Gold (a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices) or higher standards for sustainable design and use of materials.
