The College of Engineering is one of 14 schools and colleges at the University of California, Berkeley. The college was established in 1931 from a merger of the Colleges of Mechanics and the College of Civil Engineering. The College of Mining was integrated into the college in 1942. The college is currently situated in 11 buildings on the northeast side of the central campus, and also operates at the 150 acre (607,000 m²) Richmond Field Station. As of Fall 2002, there were 2,723 undergraduates, 1,533 graduate students, and 220 faculty. There are 49,800 living graduates of the College of Engineering, living in all 50 states and nearly 100 countries, with the majority living in California.

Departments

* Bioengineering (BioE)
* Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE)
* Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)
* Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR)
* Materials Science and Engineering (MSE)
* Mechanical Engineering (ME)
* Nuclear Engineering (NE)
* An inter-departmental program in Engineering Science (EngSci)

The College of Letters and Science also offers a Bachelor of Arts in computer science, which requires many of the same courses as the College of Engineering's Bachelor of Science in EECS, but has different admissions and graduation criteria. Berkeley's chemical engineering department is under the College of Chemistry.

Research units

All research facilities are managed by one of five Organized Research Units (ORUs):
*Earthquake Engineering Research Center - research and public safety programs against the destructive effects of earthquakes
*Electronics Research Laboratory - the largest ORU; advanced research in novel areas within seven different university departments, organized into five main divisions:
*#Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center
*#Berkeley Wireless Research Center
*#Gigascale Research Center - performs long-range research addressing the growing design productivity gap
*#Berkeley Northside Research Group
*#Micro Systems Group
*Engineering Systems Research Center - focuses on manufacturing, mechatronics, and microelectro mechanical systems (MEMS)
*Institute for Environmental Science and Engineering - focuses on applying basic research to current and future environmental problems
*Institute of Transportation Studies - sponsors research in transportation planning, policy analysis, environmental concerns and transportation system performance
