Enhancing the Student Experience
Since our department’s launch in 1999, we have emerged as a changemaker. Our facilities are unmatched anywhere in the world, our graduates are in demand from top employers, our research has directly impacted standards and practice, and our scholars have discovered solutions to some of the most challenging problems in the field.
At the heart of this innovation hub is our core mission: to propel students to the top of their field through intensive hands-on learning and integrating engineering mechanics theories, computational modeling simulations, experimental testing observations, practical design concepts and cutting-edge research.
With your support of teaching laboratories, UC San Diego can remain at the forefront of innovation in safeguarding people, structures and systems. Teaching labs create access to immersive and experiential learning opportunities from day one of a Structural Engineering students time at UC San Diego. Support for teaching lab resources propels our students to higher levels of excellence in their coursework, research, internships, and careers.
