The Baskin School of Engineering is located in the Baskin Engineering and Engineering 2 buildings on the UC Santa Cruz campus. The School includes departments of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMS), Biomolecular Engineering (BME), Computer Engineering (CE), Computer Science (CS), Electrical Engineering (EE) and Technology and Information Management (TIM). Our faculty have been recognized for their academic and research achievements.
A close interrelationship exists between all departments, and with other divisions of the University. We are especially proud of our collegial atmosphere that encourages cooperative interaction. School of Engineering faculties carry out joint research projects with faculty of other divisions and with other universities as well as industry and government research laboratories. Many faculty members supervise students and teach courses in more than one department in the School.
Nearby San Jose, one of the world's foremost centers of the computer industry, is about 45 minutes away from campus. Faculty and students have contact with researchers working at a variety of locations, including Hewlett-Packard, Ricoh, IBM Almaden, NASA Ames Research Center, National Semiconductor Corp., Nokia, Samsung, Via Technologies, Sun Microsystems, Cisco, and Xilinx. A growing local computer industry, centered in Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, provides opportunities for consulting experience, as well as career possibilities, especially in the software field. Nokia, Seagate Technology, and Silicon Valley Group are among the local companies that are part of the growing Santa Cruz computer industry.
The Baskin School of Engineering is growing at a fast rate. Our plans include significant increases in faculty and undergraduate and graduate programs and enrollment.
