Seven departments in the College of Engineering participate in the Master of Engineering program at UC Berkeley. Students must apply through one of the seven to enter the MEng program. Berkeley Engineering is consistently ranked among the top engineering schools by many measures, including US News & World Report, which ranks it as third nationally and seventh globally. Many individual disciplines also maintain top rankings among all engineering programs.

The MEng program has provided me with analytical skills and techniques necessary to identify new/arising technological business opportunities as well as understand the effect of disruptive technologies. More importantly, I learned the best engineering solution may not be the most business savvy or politically favorable. An electronic product can have excellent performance, but if it does not address the needs of the user, there is no value to it — no one will buy it. Also, I learned the adoption curve for a new product. All these insights, including many more not mentioned, have helped me become a more well rounded person, equipped to tackle the multi-faceted problems faced by R&D in large corporations.— Vincent Lee MEng ‘12 in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Current Job: Oracle America Inc. / Hardware Engineer in Oracle Labs
