The Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership was launched in January 2010 and is headquartered at UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering. The Fung Institute creates inclusive leaders who solve the world’s problems through innovation, technology, and collaboration across boundaries, in teaching, research, and service.
Our vision is to deliver the best and most inclusive technical leadership education in and across the world, to Fung Fellows, Master of Engineering, and doctoral students. We accomplish that by modeling diverse, equitable, and inclusive leadership in our own operational excellence and by working closely with communities, industry and alumni to create a more equitable and sustainable world.
UC Berkeley Master of Engineering (MEng) program
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.
Fung Fellowship program
A groundbreaking entrepreneurship and innovations program that connects a diverse cohort of undergraduate students with community and industry partners for a sustained tech+ experience. Fellows participate in a cross-disciplinary, team-based experience that integrates the best of engineering, public health, conservation, and leadership disciplines to solve the real-world challenges facing our most vulnerable populations. Equity being a cornerstone of the program, we recruit students underserved in tech and innovation programs from over 20 different technical and non-technical disciplines.
Science and Innovation Hub
The Science and Innovation Hub enhances the diffusion of science and innovation policy research and supports the principal investigators behind those studies.
As staff of the Fung Institute, we commit to:
- Serve students first.We prioritize improving, enhancing, and supporting the student experience.
- Help each other succeed. We go the extra mile, proactively share information, and support each other with a bias to action. The success of one is the success of all.
- Have a growth mindset. We question the status quo, are open to new ideas, and seek innovative ways of working.
- Speaking-up. We actively contribute, ask for help, and voice what’s on our minds. We communicate why and how decisions are made.
- Inclusion.We seek diversity, create opportunities, and make space for everyone to be idea generators, problem solvers, and decision-makers.
- Accountability. We hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards —as servants of students, the university, and the public.
The Fung Institute recognizes that UC Berkeley sits on the territory of xučyun (Huichin), the ancestral and unceded land of the Chochenyo speaking Ohlone people, the successors of the sovereign Verona Band of Alameda County. We recognize that every member of the Berkeley community has, and continues to benefit from, the use and occupation of this land, since the institution’s founding in 1868.
