We integrate teaching, research and service to society to offer highly qualified students the opportunity to advance the leading edge of engineering knowledge and find answers to society’s most challenging problems. At UC Davis, engineering serves as a vital bridge that connects areas of study to solve complex problems. Faculty and graduate students make important contributions to research understanding and societal well-being to serve California, the nation and the world.
