Historical note

Founding dean Llewellyn M.K. Boelter (1898-1966) organized the College of Engineering on the Los Angeles campus beginning in 1944, and led the college until his retirement in the summer of 1965. The formation of the College grew out of the University's wartime training program in engineering science and management. Dean Boelter adopted a new concept in engineering education by establishing a single undergraduate curriculum, with an emphasis on the fundamentals common to all engineers.
In 1968 the College of Engineering was renamed the School of Engineering, and was later renamed again in 2000 as the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, after a generous donation was given to the school by UCLA professor and alumnus, Henry Samueli and his wife, Susan.

Scope and Content
