General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Admission requirements vary depending on applicant type. Undergraduate applicants can contact the Admissions office at (858) 534-4831 or visit the Admissions and Outreach website (http://admissions.ucsd.edu). The UCSD General Catalog can be found on-line at http://www.ucsd.edu/catalog. Graduate applicants can contact Graduate Studies and Research at (858) 534-3555 or visit their website (http://ogs.ucsd.edu).

Recommendations

The university’s minimum undergraduate admission requirements, which are the same for all UC campuses, are based on three principles. They are:
1. the best predictor of success in the university is high scholarship in previous work
2. the study of certain subjects in high school gives a student good preparation for university work and reasonable freedom in choosing an area for specialized study
3. standardized assessment tests provide a broad base for comparison and mitigate the effects of differing grading practices

Academic preparation is the principal basis for gaining admission to UC San Diego. Students are encouraged to pursue the most rigorous academic curriculum possible, including honors, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, in order to prepare for the university experience. High test scores are necessary in conjunction with strong performance in classes and a consistent pattern of courses. Applicants who have not had the opportunity to take AP or IB courses or who have not taken exams for these courses will not be disadvantaged.

The academic requirements for admission are minimum entrance standards. Students admitted to UC San Diego are chosen from a large number of highly competitive applicants, most of who will have greatly exceeded the minimum requirements. Selection, therefore, depends on additional factors.

Other Student Support Programs

The Center for Inclusion, Diversity, Excellence, and Advancement (IDEA Student Center) at the Jacobs School of Engineering is committed to fostering a supportive environment for diverse engineering students at UC San Diego. The IDEA Center values and honors diverse experiences and we believe diversity is integral to excellence. We are a student-centered office that serves pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate engineering students. The Center is a hub for student engagement, academic enrichment, personal/professional development, leadership and community involvement, and a respectful learning environment for all. Our efforts are grounded in a commitment to ensure that UCSD engineering students reflect the richly diverse global community and that we foster an environment that prepares all engineering students to be fully engaged, technological leaders and well-rounded citizens.

IDEA Study Lab: The IDEA Study Lab is a space where engineering students can study and obtain free tutoring provided by our Engineering Honor Societies, Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu. Tutoring is available primarily for the gateway engineering courses, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

Orientation to Engineering (ENG 1, 2, 3): This course series aims at increasing student retention in engineering, specifically amongst students who need assistance transitioning into college from high school or community college. These courses introduce students to the various fields of engineering, help them learn to navigate and manage their program within the Jacobs School both personally and academically, and provide valuable exposure and contacts with representatives from industry as well as with officers of engineering student organizations, specifically, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

IDEA Scholars Program: The goal of the Jacobs School’s IDEA Scholars Program is to foster community building and academic excellence among our incoming engineering students. Each year, a cohort of 50 freshmen from diverse backgrounds attend a 5-day Summer Pre-Engineering Program to prepare them academically for the rigor of engineering studies. IDEA Scholars complete the ENG 1, 2, 3 series, participate in research, receive mentorship, and receive relevant services and support throughout their time in college to ensure they graduate with an engineering degree.

Summer Pre-Engineering Program (PrEP): Summer PrEP emphasizes motivational and social aspects of engineering, providing tools to aid in the transition from high school or community college to UCSD, while introducing students to existing engineering and academic resources on campus. During the 3-5 day residential program students participate in team-building activities, academic-themed workshops, and learn about campus academic resources.

Jacobs Undergraduate Mentoring Program (JUMP): JUMP is a community of engineering students (undergraduate and graduate) and alumni, who provide support, advice, guidance, and experience to all members. A ladder arrangement provides the structure for JUMP in which two underclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) are paired with one upperclassman (junior or senior) forming a mentor-mentee relationship. Two of these groups are then paired with a graduate student, forming a “mentor group”. Through this structure, mentorship and positive role models are provided at multiple levels: from peers, graduate students, and alumni. In addition to regular small group meetings, all participants attend two large group meetings per quarter. Alumni who are now engineering professionals are invited to each quarterly meeting to allow participants to network and interact with past Jacobs School students.

Transfer Engineering Academic Mentorship Program (T.E.A.M.): The IDEA T.E.A.M program is designed to assist new transfer students in making a successful adjustment to UC San Diego as an engineering student. Mentees are paired with a transfer mentor who provides resources, experience, and the opportunity to connect with other transfer students. Group mentoring and one-on one mentoring are both available.

Success Workshops for Emerging Engineering in Training (SWEET): SWEET encompasses a series of workshops during the academic year for all undergraduate students. Topics relate to academic success, graduate preparation, professional development, career preparation, and engineering leadership.

Diversity Student Organizations: The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) chapters at UC San Diego focus on the academic and professional development of underrepresented groups in engineering. Students develop a sense of community and belonging, develop leadership skills, network with chapter professionals/faculty, and participate in outreach activities to increase the educational pipeline of diverse students in engineering.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Our engineering departments offer freshmen level introductory courses and specialized design project programs for upper-division students. Members of the Jacobs School Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) and other industry partners develop, mentor, and fund design projects for upper-division senior design courses. In addition, student organizations offer extracurricular multi-disciplinary student design project opportunities to continuing undergraduates.

Class Design Projects: Design and teamwork are woven throughout our curricula from the freshmen to senior year. Students get a taste of engineering design through introductory courses and class competitions such as the annual battle of the robots in MAE 3 or the conceptual structural design competition in SE 103. At the senior level, CSE125 student teams design and develop an interactive video game, while students involved in capstone industry-sponsored design courses (ECE191, MAE 156) and build prototypes which often end up integrated into real products.

Team Internship Program (TIP): This innovative Jacobs School corporate-sponsored program gives students the opportunity to develop their engineering skills in a collaborative work environment that mirrors what they will encounter when they enter the workforce. Undergraduate and graduate engineering students with diverse backgrounds are competitively selected to form multi-disciplinary teams to address a 10-12 week projects devised by corporate sponsors. Each team usually consists of 2-5 students. Past projects have included: design of a battery pack for the artificial heart, a microwave power density anechoic chamber upgrade, and laser induced fluorescence mass spectrometry. This program has also sent teams internationally to Australia, China, Germany, India, Israel, and Korea. In summer 2014, TIP sent 330 students on 82 Teams to 42 different companies. For more information: http://www.jacobsschool.ucsd.edu/TIP.

Global TIES: Teams in Engineering Service is the Jacobs School of Engineering's innovative program in humanitarian engineering. Faculty-advised, interdisciplinary teams of undergraduates design and deliver solutions that matter for local and global nonprofit organizations and their clients. Global TIES is one of three programs to earn UC San Diego a place with distinction on President Obama's Honor Roll of Higher Education Community Service, and it has been recognized as a model program by the Clinton Global Initiative University. For more information, please visit: globalties.ucsd.edu or contact Dr. Mandy Bratton, Director, Global TIES, mbratton@ucsd.edu.

Jacobs School Matching Funds for Student Projects Program: This program, administered through IDEA Student Center, supports over 35 engineering student organizations by providing up to $4,000/project in matching funds for student team projects and competitions. This program recognizes and rewards student organization external fund raising by providing additional funding to cover expenses such as registration, hotel accommodations, transportation to student competitions, project materials, as well as other administrative costs.

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.

Qualcomm Institute (UC San Diego Division of California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology)

“Qualcomm Institute represents a new mechanism to address large-scale societal issues by bringing together multidisciplinary teams of the best minds.” Larry Smarr, Director, Qualcomm Institute

The U.S. -- and California in particular -- have long held sway as the world’s innovation leaders. But, given the rapidly changing nature of the world and emergence of the global economy, they are in danger of losing the competitive edge they’ve had.

Significantly, this new economy is being fueled by exciting scientific developments arising out of basic research in nanotechnology, life sciences, information technology, and telecommunications. And these disciplinary areas are creating a spiral vortex, interpenetrating and changing each other as they themselves change. This is where the opportunity to stay competitive lies.

Giving the changing climate of competitiveness, the University of California has leveraged its strong research and technical capabilities to create a secret weapon: the California Institutes for Science and Innovation (Cal ISIs), which have the ability to drive innovation.

But to drive innovation, you must be innovative: Qualcomm Institute represents a new mechanism to address large-scale societal issues by bringing together multidisciplinary teams of the best minds (both on and beyond UC campuses) in a way that had been impossible earlier.

Qualcomm Institute is taking ideas beyond theory into practice, accelerating innovation and shortening the time to product development and job creation. Where the university traditionally has focused on education and research, Qualcomm Institute extends that focus to include development and deployment of prototype infrastructure for testing new solutions in a real-world context.

Qualcomm Institute represents an experiment in inventing the university research environment of the future to continue to fuel innovation in the global economy. It:
o Builds horizontal links among departments to foster multidisciplinary studies.
o Creates research teams consisting of members who can be located anywhere because of the Internet.
o Supports involvement by faculty, students, industry, government, and community partners.
o Enables prototyping in Qualcomm Institute "living laboratories."
o Provides technical professionals as the bridge between academia and industry.
