The Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership was launched in January 2010 and is headquartered at UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering. Our mission is to transform engineers and scientists into leaders who can take risks and develop technical, social, and economic innovations.
The Fung Institute achieves its mission through teaching, research, and service activities. We offer programs that combine leadership coursework with intensive study in any of the seven engineering disciplines offered by the College. We are shaping a research agenda that will connect technical innovation with people and businesses, and use data in ways that will change the world.

The one-year Master of Engineering program strives to develop leaders who are able to draw equally on their managerial and technical strengths, as they tackle major technological challenges and create innovative solutions in real-world settings. We prepare students to take on leadership positions in their chosen industry by merging their understanding of business and technical skills.
