UCSB Engineering

Welcome to the Undergraduate Studies Office for the College of Engineering!

The College of Engineering has approximately 1,400 undergraduates majoring in chemical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, or mechanical engineering. With about 135 full-time faculty members, the College has an unusually good student to faculty ratio and a strong sense of community.

We encourage students to meet with the advisors in our offices to make sure that they take advantage of all the College has to offer. Domestic and international internships, Education Abroad, individual study, and research opportunities await enterprising students. The Bachelor of Science degree is designed to be completed in four years. Our graduates leave us well prepared for careers in industry, graduate and professional schools, or both.

We encourage you to use the links on this page—and to meet with our advisors—to make full use of the help our offices can provide during your time at UCSB. Don’t hesitate to visit us in room 1006 Harold Frank Hall.
