The Mechanical Engineering program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) encompasses many disciplines, including dynamics, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, manufacturing and design, nanoelectromechanical and microelectromechanical systems, structural and solid mechanics, and systems and control.


Students in the Mechanical Engineering program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) are among the very best in the world and raise the bar seemingly every year in terms of the credentials that they bring to our campus. Our preeminent faculty continually invent and stretch the boundaries of knowledge, stewarding a vibrant intellectual community that constantly seeks new solutions to emerging and persistent global challenges. The applications of mechanical and aerospace engineering are quite diverse, including aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, energy and propulsion systems, robotics, machinery, manufacturing and materials processing, microelectronics, biological systems, and more.

Areas of Study

More than ever before, engineering students must learn how to be nimble — technology virtuosos — while also mastering the deep quantitative knowledge that defines their fields. At UCLA MAE, our ‘robots to rockets’ curriculum seeks to strike an ideal balance of structured learning with creative, design-oriented opportunities. In both endeavors, our faculty and staff continually reassess how and what we teach, such as an increased recent emphasis on data fusion, machine learning, and sustainability. In all these endeavors, we strive to develop and maintain close, personalized interactions among students, faculty, and staff that persist beyond graduation into careers defined by lifelong learning and technological adaptation.
