Celebrating 50 Years of the College of Engineering

Founded in 1966

We were officially established as a College of Engineering at UC Santa Barbara in 1966, after several years of growth and engineering departments that emerged during the 1960s. Join us as we celebrate 50 years of UCSB Engineering during the 2016 - 2017 academic year, and marvel at how technology has evolved in fifty years.

Every week from July 2016 to June 2017 we will be sharing a story from our past or present, such as: pioneers in technology, alumni making an impact, living historians, students reaching ahead to a better future. Be sure to follow us on social media to catch our weekly posts tagged #UCSBCOE50. Read Our Engineering Stories, an archive of our anniversary articles for the year plus your submissions.
