The Baskin School of Engineering offers forward-looking programs of study and visionary research centered in six cross-disciplinary departments: Applied Mathematics, Biomolecular Engineering, Computational Media, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Statistics. Faculty from these departments collaborate on teaching and research activities that transcend disciplinary boundaries and provide students with rich and diverse learning experiences.
Our graduate programs provide exciting research and learning opportunities. Graduate students are mentored by one or more advisors and may participate in a number of interdisciplinary programs, including robotics, rehabilitative technology, sustainability engineering, bioengineering and bioinformatics, games and playable media, mathematics and statistical modeling, information and communication sciences, software and services engineering and more.
Undergraduate degree programs are administered through our Undergraduate Affairs Office, ensuring that students have adequate coaching throughout their academic tenure. Many of our undergraduate programs emphasize hands-on experience in research laboratories. Individual faculty members within the Baskin School of Engineering sponsor independent studies and senior thesis research projects, and students are often hired as laboratory staff.
UCSC provides undergraduates a range of academic enrichment, support programs, and resources designed to enhance the educational experience.
UC Santa Cruz offers support services to enhance the academic and personal growth of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
