Three-dimensional transistors in the semiconductor industry. “Smart dust” particles to acquire real-time data about our environment. Molecular surgery to dramatically improve cancer outcomes. Berkeley engineers are making a global impact with their areas of inquiry and discovery.

We’re located in the Bay Area’s vibrant culture of innovation and play an integral role in the Silicon Valley ecosystem. We’re known for our tradition of challenging conventions and for looking at problems from new angles of inquiry. Working within state-of-the-art facilities or out in the field, our premier faculty and post-docs are collaborating to break intellectual and technological ground. We are home to more than 50 centers and institutes, where engineering researchers are bridging disciplines and sharing insights at the farthest edge of discovery. Our advanced student training and our deep relationships with key industry partners further strengthen our stature as intellectual leaders.
