The Henry Samueli School of Engineering

The UCI Samueli School of Engineering inspires ingenuity, creates opportunities and unleashes innovation to solve society’s most pressing problems. We bring together faculty and students from six academic departments – biomedical, chemical and biomolecular,

civil and environmental, electrical and computer science, materials science and

engineering, and mechanical and aerospace – to advance solutions-oriented engineering. 


The COVID-19 crisis has affected the way we all learn, work, and live. Today, you have the opportunity to help further our impact and to support our communities who need it most—the students who are carrying on despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic. Together, we will overcome these obstacles and promote an environment where our engineers have the tools they need to build a better world. 


Dean’s Excellence Fund

As devastating as the pandemic has been worldwide, Anteater Engineers have shown tremendous resilience and flexibility. Undergraduate and graduate students alike have embraced the new modes of instruction and are creatively overcoming challenges to learn, collaborate, and dive into experiential learning—even when this is done remotely.


We invite you to invest in our game-changing efforts by supporting the Dean’s Excellence Fund for emergency COVID relief. Your support will help us off-set expenses unique to these times, such as the need for enhanced technology and additional supplies and materials. Your gift will make an immediate impact and provide our students with the tools to propel our school to new levels of excellence.


Student Scholarships

The cost to attend a University of California institution has skyrocketed in the last 20 years, and UCI students and their families are paying more than three times as much for tuition as their 1999 counterparts. Many students are also facing additional and unexpected financial hardships due to the current economic uncertainty. By supporting student scholarships, you will help offset the high costs of a university education, help recruit and support the best and the brightest students, and advance the American dream for the next generation. Your gift ensures the tradition of excellence known to all Anteater engineers and will help us continue to produce leaders and innovators of the future. 

The Stacey Nicholas Office of Access and Inclusion

The Stacey Nicholas Office of Access and Inclusion (OAI) was established in 2015 to recruit, retain, and graduate talented students from historically excluded populations who are currently underrepresented in Engineering and ICS. Your gift to OAI will ensure that participants receive support such as mentoring, tutoring, professional development, scholarship assistance, research opportunities, and resources for freshman and transfer students adapting to their transition to UCI. 


Join us virtually at 3pm today for the first annual OAI Open House! Hear first-hand from OAI students and alumni about their personal experiences and how participating in OAI contributed to their success. You will also learn about the School’s next steps and goals regarding diversity and inclusion and Equity in Engineering initiatives. We hope you can join us! Please RSVP in advance.
