Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Design Courses are offered/required in all programs: Aerospace Engineering Design, Biomedical Engineering Design, Chemical Engineering Design, Civil Engineering Design, Computer Engineering Design, Computer Science and Engineering Design, Electrical Engineering Design, Environmental Engineering Design, Materials Science Engineering Design, Mechanical Engineering Design, and formal Design in Industry.

Design is composed of a logical process followed to meet a specific need. The design process encompasses most of the following activities:
1. Identification of a need
2. Problem definition
3. Search or literature review
4. Determination of constraints
5. Identification of criteria that are required and desired of the design
6. Alternative solutions
7. Analysis
8. Decision or selection from a group of potential solutions
9. Specification of the final design, and
10. Communication of the design
(Note: Fabrication of the design is not necessary.)
Research may involve design but it may be distinct from design. For example, the design of an experimental apparatus may be considered design, but the collection and analysis of data is not design.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION
Students applying for admission to the University of California should complete and submit an undergraduate application online at:
http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/apply/

A non-refundable $70 application fee ($80 for nonresidents) must accompany the application. For application filing deadline for undergraduates is the immediate November 30 prior to fall enrollment quarter.

The University of California, Irvine offers admission into the University and not into an individual major. Applicants indicate a preference to a major on the application and enter that major upon receiving an offer of admission to the University of California, Irvine. More information for freshmen, see: http://www.admissions.uci.edu/applicants/freshman_admission.html

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students should begin their studies in fall quarter. The mathematics and science preparation, along with honors and advanced placement courses, is fundamental to success. Freshman applicants are expected to arrive with sufficient preparation to begin math studies in calculus, having completed precalculus or the equivalent prior to matriculation.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Non-immigrants studying in the United States must meet the same requirements as domestic California and non-California residents. Students studying outside the United States must complete secondary school, earn superior marks in academic subjects, sit for the UC required exams and may be required to demonstrate English proficiency. For more information, see the following website:
http://www.admissions.uci.edu/prospective_international/index.html

Generally, financial assistance and scholarships from the University are not available to the nonimmigrant-visa student. International students must provide proof that sufficient funds will be available to meet their educational commitments while studying in the United States. International undergraduate students are considered as nonresidents of California and are required to pay nonresident tuition in addition to fees paid by legal residents of California.

Please direct all inquiries regarding the undergraduate admission of international students to the Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools (http://www.admissions.uci.edu/).

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

NONRESIDENT ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Admission requirements for applicants who are not California residents vary slightly from requirements for California residents. However, all nonresident freshman and transfer applicants are subject to the same selection criteria as California residents, as explained in a previous section. Refer to the Expenses and Fees section for information regarding residence classification for tuition purposes and the Nonresident Tuition Fee.

NONRESIDENT FRESHMAN APPLICANT
A nonresident freshman applicant must (1) graduate from a regionally or state-accredited high school, or complete an appropriate proficiency examination; (2) complete satisfactorily the "a-g" pattern of subject requirements listed under requirements for California residents; (3) earn a grade point average of at least 3.4 or higher in the required high school subjects (3.0 is equal to a B average); (4) meet the examination requirement: either the ACT Assessment With Writing Test or the SAT Reasoning Test (critical reading, mathematics, and writing).

NONRESIDENT TRANSFER APPLICANT
The minimum admission requirements for nonresident transfer applicants are the same as those for residents, except that nonresidents must have a grade point average of 2.8 or higher in all transferable college course work.

For more information, see the following website:
http://www.admissions.uci.edu/

Residency Requirements

Adult students (at least 18 years of age) may establish residence for tuition purposes in California if they are a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident or other immigrant, or a nonimmigrant who is not precluded from establishing a domicile in the U.S. This includes nonimmigrants who hold valid visas of the following types: A, E, H-1, H-4, I, K, L, O-1, O-3, R, or V.

To establish residence a student must, immediately prior to the residence determination date: 1. Be physically present in California for more than one calendar year, and 2. Must have come to California with the intent to make California the permanent home. For example, physical presence within the state of California solely for educational purposes does not constitute the establishment of California residence regardless of the length of stay. 3. Students under 24 years of age whose parents are not residents of California will be required to meet the Financial Independence requirement in order to be classified as a resident for tuition purposes.

Residence cannot be derived from a spouse or parents.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Admission as a Transfer Applicant
The University defines a transfer applicant as a student who has completed high school and who enrolled in a regular session at a college or university after high school. (Summer sessions do not count.) UCI considers a California Community College transfer applicant as a student who has completed at least 30 semester units/45 quarter UC-transferable units at one or more California Community Colleges (see full definition above). A competitive UCI transfer applicant should have a UC transferable GPA of 3.0 or above. A transfer applicant may not disregard the college record and apply for admission as a freshman. (Transfer applicants who are not residents of California should also refer to the section on Nonresident Admission Requirements.)

Transfer Admission Guarantee: UCI’s Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program offers provisional admission to well-qualified junior-level students from participating California Community Colleges. Although admission to UCI is selective in most majors, through TAG, admission can be guaranteed for transfer students who meet the TAG Eligibility and major prerequisites requirements (see TAG Selection Guidelines later in this section).

Selection Criteria
UCI attempts to accommodate as many qualified transfer applicants as possible. Priority consideration for admission of transfer applicants is given to junior-level applicants (with a minimum of 60 semester/90 quarter units of UC-transferable credit) from California Community Colleges and is based upon:

GPA in transferable courses;
depth of preparation toward general education and major requirements; and
participation in the TAG (Transfer Admission Guarantee) program, which requires early completion of one transferable English composition course, and one transferable course in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning.
TAG Applicants for fall quarter 2015 admission must have completed the first English and one mathematics course by the end of summer 2014. The second English course must be completed by spring 2015. Transfer applicants with the strongest academic performance will be the most competitive for admission. Junior transfers from four-year colleges, including other UC campuses, and lower-division transfers will be considered as space permits.

In the case that UCI is unable to accommodate all qualified applicants in their first-choice major, those students who indicate a valid alternate major may be offered admission in that major. Students who wish to change their major after enrolling at UCI must submit an Undergraduate Petition for Change of Major to the academic counseling office in the school or program of their prospective major. This is of particular importance to those who apply in majors which are subject to additional course prerequisites and/or have a limit placed on the number of applicants admitted into the major. (See the following list.)

UCI’s transfer selection process is also based upon consideration of the academic criteria in conjunction with the following personal achievement criteria: an exceptionally challenging curriculum; outstanding accomplishments relevant to academic aims; hardships or unusual circumstances the applicant has faced, and the ways in which the student has responded to these challenges; a strong, thoughtful match between UCI’s programs and the student’s academic and career objectives, preparation, talents, and skills; and potential contributions to the campus. The level of performance needed to gain admission varies from year to year depending on the size and the academic quality of the applicant pool and the number of enrollment spaces.

Transfer Student Admission Requirements
The University of California requirements for admission as a transfer applicant vary according to the high school record. Transfer applicants who have completed a California Certificate of Proficiency or the equivalent must also meet regular University entrance requirements.

Transfer applicants should also refer to the section on Information for Transfer Students: Fulfilling Requirements for a Bachelor’s Degree.

The transcript submitted from the last college attended must show, as a minimum, that the student was in good standing and had earned a GPA of 2.4 (2.8 for nonresidents) or better in all transferable coursework.

A transfer applicant must also meet one of the following conditions:

If a student was eligible for admission to the University when the student graduated from high school"meaning that the student satisfied the Subject, Scholarship, and Examination Requirements or was identified by the University as eligible under the Eligibility in the Local Context (ELC) program and completed the Subject and Examination Requirements in the senior year"the student is eligible to transfer if he or she has a C (2.0) average in transferable college coursework and has met the prerequisites for his or her major.
If a student met the Scholarship Requirement in high school but did not satisfy the Subject Requirement, the student must take transferable college courses in the missing subjects, earn a grade of C or better in each of these required courses, and earn an overall C (2.0) average in all transferable college coursework to be eligible to transfer.
Students who were not eligible for admission to the University when they graduated from high school because they did not meet the Scholarship Requirement must:
Complete 60 semester (90 quarter) units of UC-transferable college credit with a grade point average of at least 2.4 (2.8 for nonresidents). No more than 14 semester (21 quarter) units may be taken Pass/Not Pass); and
Complete the following course pattern requirement, earning a grade of C or better in each course:
Two UC-transferable college courses (3 semester or 4"5 quarter units each) in English composition; and
One UC-transferable college course (3 semester or 4"5 quarter units) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning; and
Four UC-transferable college courses (3 semester or 4"5 quarter units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas: the arts and humanities, the social and behavioral sciences, and the physical and biological sciences.
Each course must be worth at least 3 semester units.

NOTE: For UCI, in fulfilling items i and ii, applicants for fall should complete the courses in English and mathematics no later than the spring term.

All Engineering applicants must complete the following required courses: one year of approved calculus, one course in calculus-based physics with laboratory for engineering and physics majors, and additional courses as specified by the major. See The Henry Samueli School of Engineering section of this Catalogue for information on courses required for each major.

Transfer applicants to the majors listed below must complete prerequisite courses for the major as specified.

Engineering: Applicants must select either Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering:Premedical, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering (a general program of study which is open to upper-division students only), Environmental Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering as their major on the application. Junior-level applicants with the highest grades overall and who satisfactorily complete course prerequisites will be given preference for admission.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description

Research Description By Graduate Engineering Department

Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering faculty have special interest and expertise in four research thrust areas: Biophotonics, Biomedical Nanoscale systems, Biomedical Computational Technologies and Tissue Engineering.

Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

The Department's strength in bioprocessing and biotechnology has evolved to include complementary research activities in: biotechnology and biosystems engineering; tissue engineering; bio-transport phenomena; biomolecular, biomaterial, and interfacial engineering; smart and multifunctional materials; electronic and optical materials; fuel cell and energy system materials; nanostructured materials.

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Research within the Department is focused in three thrust areas: structural and geotechnical engineering, including aspects of soil mechanics, structural dynamics, health monitoring and damage inspection, advanced structural materials, earthquake engineering, and reliability and risk assessment; transportation systems engineering, including traffic operations and management, advanced information technology applications, travel behavior, and transportation systems analysis; and water resources and environmental engineering, including hydrology, water resources engineering, contamination management, and pollution control technologies.

Computer Science

The field of computer science encompasses the principles of computing that underlie modern technology. Research topics span low-level architecture and systems, middle-level infrastructure like programming languages, databases, and networks, and high-level topics such as artificial intelligence, computer graphics, and network security. Inter-disciplinary areas such as bioinformatics study the use of computational techniques that give rise to new understanding in other disciplines.
